Daniil Trifonov Solo Recital at Carnegie Hall
Tuesday December 12, 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm
Daniil Trifonov, Piano
In the hands of a thoughtful interpreter like Daniil Trifonov, timeless works can be heard and felt anew. Rameau was one of the keyboard’s first great composers, and his works for harpsichord reveal powerful new possibilities when played on a modern piano. Mozart’s Piano Sonata in F Major follows, with an especially affecting slow movement that leads to a galloping, fleet-fingered finale. Felix Mendelssohn’s Variations sérieuses is a virtuosic masterpiece with a theme that is dazzlingly explored across 17 variations—usually in little more than 10 minutes combined. The concert concludes with Beethoven’s monumental “Hammerklavier” sonata, a true feat to perform and one of the piano’s greatest works.
