Daniil Trifonov: Decades

One of the most highly-praised pianists of today, Daniil Trifonov returns to Finland to perform his long-awaited first solo recital. A Grammy Award winner and selected artist of the year by both Gramophone and Musical America magazines, Trifonov’s technical virtuosity combined with his unique tenderness and depth of the interpretation has charmed audiences and critics all over the world.

At Helsinki Festival, this Russian artist challenges himself with an ambitious and intriguing programme. With a key piano piece from almost every decade of the 20th century, the recital takes the audience on a musical journey through the century. The piano virtuoso shows his stunningly versatile expression in this demanding concert that ranges from modernism to minimalism and requires extreme concentration and physical endurance.
