One of today’s most exciting young pianists, Daniil Trifonov joins forces with his teacher and mentor Sergei Babayan for a spectacular duo recital centered around Stravinsky’s Le sacre du printemps. The composer’s four-hand arrangement of his iconic score preserves all its colors and raw rhythmic energy, focused onto the keys of a single piano. The concert is bookended by Schumann’s Andante and Variations Op. 46—originally premiered by Brahms and Clara Schumann—and two virtuoso works by Rachmaninov.
