“He is, no other word, a phenomenon. Like Rachmaninoff, he is both a dazzling pianist and composer.” (The Guardian)

At 20, Daniil Trifonov won first prize at both the Tchaikovsky and Rubinstein competitions. Now 26, this dazzling Russian pianist makes his UMS recital debut after a wildly successful appearance with the Montreal Symphony in 2016. He takes a deep dive into the music of Chopin, exploring the Polish genius’s world and the music he inspired.

Please note: On the night of this concert, E. Washington St. will be closed between Thayer St. and Fletcher St. due to planning for upcoming U-M Bicentennial/Homecoming Weekend festivities. Please plan to allow additional time for parking. We suggest the parking structure at Palmer Ave.
