Daniil Trifonov, Piano


Zankel Hall
Post- and neo-Romanticism, serialism, and minimalism are but a few musical styles that flourished in the 20th century and paved the way for the sounds of today. Daniil Trifonov, in what promises to be one of the most eclectic and exciting recitals of the season, performs a seminal work from each decade of the 20th century. Berg’s restless harmonies, Messiaen’s kaleidoscopic colors, Adams’s undulating rhythmic pulse, and more are explored by the fascinating and virtuosic young pianist.

Part of Mix and Mingle.
