BAILEY HALL EVENT

When a student learns and becomes a master in his own right… The teacher, Sergei Babayan, is an international piano sensation who has been hailed as “a genius. Period” (Le Devoir, Montreal). The student is GRAMMY Award-winning pianist Daniil Trifonov, who has made a spectacular ascent in the classical music world since winning the International Tchaikovsky Competition in 2011. Named Gramophone’s Artist of the Year, Trifonov’s recording of Franz Liszt études led to his first GRAMMY Award for Best Classical Instrumental Solo in 2017. He has spent the 2018-19 season as Artist-in-Residence for the Berlin Philharmonic. As The Times of London notes, Trifonov is “without question the most astounding pianist of our age.” The tour-de-force of Babayan and Trifonov together will create a concert for the ages.
