Daniil Trifonov launches the summer with an eight-concert tour of Israel, joining Kent Nagano and the Israel Philharmonic to perform the First Piano Concertos of Liszt and Tchaikovsky in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, and Haifa (June 23–30).
“He is the complete package – a consummate recitalist, a superb soloist, an expert recording artist, and in addition, a stellar chamber musician.” So stated David Finckel and Wu Han, co-artistic directors of the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, when naming Alessio Bax as winner of the 2013 Martin E. Segal Award. This enviable versatility is showcased by the pianist’s summer lineup.
