Daniil Trifonov, Piano

Hommage à Chopin
Saturday, October 28, 2017 8 PM Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage
Url Copied
Daniil Trifonov by Dario Acosta / DG
The silken legato line, glittering ornamentation, melancholy sighs, and sheer brio of dazzling pianism define Chopin’s music. The sensational young pianist Daniil Trifonov takes a deep dive into the Polish genius’s world and the music he inspired. Trifonov performs Chopin favorites, selections from Rachmaninoff’s dazzling variations, and more. The beauty and power of Chopin’s music is eternal, his influence inestimable. Trifonov shows us why.

At a Glance

One of the greatest pianists of his day, Chopin revolutionized keyboard writing in dozens of nocturnes, waltzes, mazurkas, ballades, and other solo pieces that imbued the brilliance of the salon style with unprecedented poetic depth. Schumann—himself a master of Romantic character pieces—extolled Chopin’s accomplishment, in which, he wrote, “imagination and technique share dominion side by side.” Debussy and many others built on Chopin’s innovations in harmony, melody, and figuration.

Daniil Trifonov’s Hommage à Chopin surveys the Polish master’s enduring influence on composers as diverse as the Russian Rachmaninoff and the Catalan Mompou, who each wrote highly virtuosic sets of variations inspired by Chopin’s piano preludes. In addition to Schumann’s intimate pen portrait, this evening’s program includes short pieces by Tchaikovsky, Grieg, and Barber that translate Chopin’s musical language into more modern idioms. Having approached his subject obliquely, Mr. Trifonov concludes his tribute with one of Chopin’s most beloved and characteristic works: the Piano Sonata No. 2 in B-flat Minor, with its ever-popular funeral march.

Daniil Trifonov


Winner of Gramophone's 2016 Artist of the Year award, Russian pianist Daniil Trifonov has made a spectacular ascent in the world of classical music as a solo artist, composer, champion of the concerto repertoire, and collaborator at the keyboard in chamber music and song. The Times (London) calls Mr. Trifonov "without question the most astounding pianist of our age."

Focusing on Chopin during the 2017-2018 season, Mr. Trifonov releases Chopin Evocations-his fourth album as an exclusive Deutsche Grammophon artist-marking his first foray into a new repertoire with works of 20th-century composers who were greatly influenced by the Polish master, including Samuel Barber and Frederic Mompou.

Mr. Trifonov gives more than 20 performances on this theme across the US, Europe, and Asia, including three as part of his self-curated, seven-concert Perspectives series at Carnegie Hall: this evening's solo recital and two all-Chopin programs with Kremerata Baltica. Additional concerts in the series include collaborations with baritone Matthias Goerne and Mr. Trifonov's teacher Sergei Babayan, the latter capping a US tour that includes the world premiere of a new work for two pianos by Mauro Lanza, co-commissioned by Carnegie Hall; a performance of Mr. Trifonov's own Piano Concerto with Valery Gergiev leading the Mariinsky Orchestra, culminating another US tour; and a solo recital in Zankel Hall that includes a seminal piece from each decade of the 20th century. Mr. Trifonov curates a similar series this season at Vienna's Konzerthaus, as well as in San Francisco, concluding with a season-closing Rachmaninoff performance with the San Francisco Symphony.

Additional highlights of the 2017-2018 season include European tours with Gidon Kremer and Kremerata Baltica, as well as with the London Philharmonic Orchestra, Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, and Orchestra del Teatro alla Scala. Mr. Trifonov's orchestral appearances include Strauss's Burleske with the Orquesta Nacional de España and Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra; Schumann's Piano Concerto with Lisbon's Gulbenkian Orchestra and the Berliner Philharmoniker; Scriabin's Piano Concerto with the Seattle Symphony; a performance of his own Piano Concerto with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra; Prokofiev with the Mariinsky Orchestra and The Cleveland Orchestra; and Rachmaninoff with the Munich Philharmonic, Toronto Symphony Orchestra, and The Philadelphia Orchestra.
