Daniil Trifonov, piano

“Chicago pianophiles turned out in force Sunday to hear what all the excitement is about, and Trifonov did not disappoint. The slender pianist—who looks even younger than his 23 years—is the real deal.”   —Chicago Classical Review

Russian-born Daniil Trifonov opens the 2014 Festival performing the program he presented at Chicago’s Symphony Center earlier this year. The 23-year-old has experienced a meteoric rise in his career with two sold-out Carnegie Hall solo recitals and concerto performances with virtually all of the world’s major orchestras.

Stravinsky    Serenade in A
Debussy       Selections from Images, Book I
Ravel            Selections from Miroirs
Schumann    Symphonic Études Op. 13, including Posth. No. 1, 4 and 5

Friday, April 25, 8 PM  |  Pre-Concert Talk 7 PM
Chenery Auditorium, Kalamazoo  |  $35, $25, $15

Piotr Anderszewski, piano

“Queen Elizabeth Hall was packed for Anderszewski’s recital, delivered in the intensely engaging, self-effacing way that almost disguises the sheer technical mastery and musicianship of his playing.”   —The Guardian

Hear why our 2002 Gilmore Artist is highly regarded as one of the world’s great interpreters of Bach. Piotr Anderszewski takes advantage of the full range of timbres of the piano often using the sustaining pedal to allow notes to pool together like watercolors.

Bach            English Suite No. 1 in A Major, BWV 806
                    Overture in the French style in B minor, BWV 831
Janáček       Selections from “On an Overgrown Path,” Book II
Beethoven   Sonata No. 31 in A-flat Major, Op. 110

Monday, April 28, 8 PM  |  Pre-Concert Talk 7 PM
Dalton Center Recital Hall, Kalamazoo  |  $30, $20, $10

Jazz Club: Jacky Terrasson Trio

“This was extreme-dynamics brinkmanship, figuring out how music can intensify while growing ever quieter—this was music that rewards an audience.”   —The New York Times

Winner of the Thelonious Monk Award in 1993, Jacky Terrasson has matured into one of the most admirable jazz pianists of our time. Making his overdue Festival debut, Terrasson will tear things up at the Jazz Club with his trio, showing why The New York Times named him one of the “30 under 30” as a musician most likely to change American culture in the next 30 years.

Thursday, May 1, 6:30 & 9 PM
Williams Theatre, Kalamazoo  |  $30 reserved table, $20 general admission balcony
