During these performances, he impressed jury members and observers such as Martha Argerich, Krystian Zimerman, Van Cliburn, Nelson Freire, Yefim Bronfman and Valery Gergiev. In fact, the judges at the Tchaikovsky Competition were so moved that Gergiev personally awarded Trifonov the “Grand Prix,” an additional award given to the best overall competitor in any of that Competition's categories.
Following these accolades, Trifonov was invited to perform by many major presenters worldwide during the 2011-12 season, including SPA. We can only imagine how highly sought-after he truly is, and we count ourselves extremely fortunate to be presenting him this early in his career! Alongside his Houston debut, he will perform for the first time with the London Symphony Orchestra and Mariinsky Orchestra with Gergiev, Israel Philharmonic with Mehta and the Warsaw Philharmonic with Antoni Wit this season, as well as collaborate with such conductors as Mikhail Pletnev, Vladimir Fedoseyev, Sir Neville Marriner, Pietari Inkinen and Eivind Gullberg-Jensen.
What a program he has in store for us! How can anyone resist Debussy’s Images, Book 1 or Chopin’s Etudes, Op. 10? Also on the program are Schubert’s Sonata in B-flat Major and the Schubert-Liszt compositions Fruhlingsglaubeand Die Stadt.
Tickets may be picked up at the Will Call Box Office 1 hour before curtain. There will be no late seating for this performance.
