Daniil Trifonov's rare artistry illuminates Bach's rarely heard 'Art of Fugue' / The Classical Review

Daniil Trifonov performed music of Bach Sunday afternoon in Chicago. As the 60-degree weather offered hope that another Chicago winter may be coming to an end, there was also the additional spring harbinger of Daniil Trifonov's return to Orchestra Hall. This time the gifted young Russian pianist brought a recital devoted entirely to music of Johann Sebastian Bach. Trifonov's revised program proved even more concentrated than the one scheduled, with most of the afternoon focused on a complete performance of Bach's The Art of Fugue.

Daniil Trifonov repeats the Bach program Wednesday in Washington D.C, March 10 in St. Paul, March 12 in Kansas City and March 15 in Boston for the Celebrity Series.
