At the age of 25, Daniil Trifonov has already established himself as one of the finest living pianists. “A fully formed virtuoso with an artistic soul to match his mighty? fingers” (Seattle Times), he has appeared with all of the “Big Five” U.S. orchestras, swept first prize and Audience Prize at both the Rubinstein and Tchaikovsky Competitions, and given a solo recital at Carnegie Hall to uproarious acclaim. Amid his touring schedule, though, he manages to continue studying at The Cleveland Institute of Music, under the tutelage of prominent Armenian pianist Sergei Babayan. In an extremely special evening, this student and teacher come together to perform a program of 19th century piano duos. It will be the first two-piano program on our series since 1982, and an unusual opportunity to witness such an intimate relationship enacted onstage – the cherished passing of music from one generation to the next will be right before our eyes.
Richardson Auditorium · 8:00 p.m.–10:00 p.m.

Workshop with pianists Daniil Trifonov & Sergei Babayan: PUC Performers as Teachers Series
Following their concert at Richardson Auditorium the previous evening, Trifonov and Babayan will share insights into piano-ensemble repertoire when they coach talented Princeton University student pianists in a workshop free and open to all. As part of Princeton University Concerts' new Performers as Teachers series, this class is an opportunity to learn directly from the artists as they shed light on the process of preparing multi-piano works and the art of piano chamber music. The workshop will offer anyone, regardless of any experience with piano music, a fascinating peek into what happens before pianists—particularly piano ensembles—take the stage. The Performers as Teachers series will continue in March and April 2017 with workshops led by violinist Rainer Schmidt of the Hagen String Quartet, and violinist Pamela Frank.
