In a chronological programme dedicated to 20th century eclectic works, Daniil Trifonov invites us to a precious moment of eternity. Like in his 2018 Chopin recital, the pianist follows a common leitmotiv.

The tonal instability of Berg’s sonata, the blurry colours evoked in Prokofiev’s Sarcasmes and the percussive piano expressions transmitted in Bartók’s En plein air all depict a world of musical creativity made real for the audience.

In Variations for piano (1930), American composer Copland suggests an entry to serialism through a discordant theme of seven notes.
The main characteristics of Messiaen’s personal musical language are capital in his spiritual piece « Vingt Regards sur l’Enfant-Jésus » (1944).

The time travel takes us ten years later with Ligeti’s Musica ricercata, a variation exercise upon the A note and with Stockhausen’s appeal for experimentation in Klavierstück IX (1954-1961). The concert ends on minimalistic music, either repetitive in Adams’ China Gates (1977) or based on the Allegretto of Beethoven’s Symphony No. 7 in Corigliano’s Fantasia on an Ostinato (1985).

With the generous support of
Madame Aline Foriel-Destezet
