Daniil Trifonov Live from Carnegie Hall

Daniil Trifonov, c. Dario Acosta

Tuesday at 7:00 pm

With an exclusive recording contract on Deutsche Grammophon, and engagements with the world’s top orchestras, one would think Russian pianist Daniil Trifonov was beyond taking piano lessons. He’s not. That is, he’s not one to miss opportunities to grow and expand his abilities, which are formidable, in spite of a hectic touring schedule.

Composition is also an important area of expression for this 23-year-old artist, so he stops by the Cleveland Institute of Music for lessons, and time with his piano teacher, Sergei Babayan. In April of this year, he premiered his First Piano Concerto at the Institute.

Daniil Trifonov’s ascent into the ranks of major artists has been meteoric since he walked away with gold medals from both the Tchaikovsky and Rubinstein competitions, just weeks apart in 2011. He made his Carnegie Hall debut in February of 2013 and returns to the storied venue for a recital on Tuesday, December 9; a concert which will be broadcast live by WFMT starting at 7:00 pm.
