ABOUT THIS CONCERT

You’ll know it from the first note! One of the most iconic openings in all of classical music is spun into a staggering tour de force for the ages in Tchaikovsky’s wildly popular concerto. No one plays it better than Daniil Trifonov, an artist who “reaches places other pianists can only dream about” (Daily Telegraph). Just like your favorite art gallery, Mussorgsky’s vivid, sonic sketches offer a feast for the senses and an escape from the ordinary, from the spooky haunts of Baba Yaga’s hut to the majestic gates of Kiev.
