Great Performers in Recital at Tanglewood: Daniil Trifonov
August 8, 2020 @ 8:00 PM - 10:00 PM$12
Hosted by Nicole Cabell
The Russian pianist Daniil Trifonov is as well-known for his searching, thoughtful programs as he is for his remarkable virtuosity and sensitivity as a performer.
Bach’s The Art of Fugue demands all of a performer’s resources. Written and compiled near the end of the composer’s life, The Art of Fugue is a collection of diverse pieces based on a single D minor theme. That theme is reversed, inverted, and otherwise reworked to create a brilliant kaleidoscope of contrapuntal mastery. Like The Goldberg Variations, The Art of Fugue also embraces a wide range of musical moods and styles.
