The Russian pianist Daniil Trifonov gained attention by winning the 2011 International Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow, and quickly gained a spot among the A-list of the world's keyboard virtuosos. Performance Santa Fe sponsors him in an intriguing program of 10 works - one from each decade of the 20th century, beginning with Berg's Piano Sonata (composed in 1907-1908) and concluding with Thomas Adès' Traced Overhead (from 1996). Along the way, he visits pieces by Prokofiev, Bartók, Copland, Messiaen, Ligeti, Stockhausen, John Adams, and John Corigliano. The concert takes place on Tuesday, May 1, at the Lensic Performing Arts Center.
