Pianist Daniil Trifonov Postpones Recitals Due to Injury

Following an elbow injury, the GRAMMY Award-winning Russian pianist has rescheduled all of his concert appearances up to November 25, 2021


Trifonov was due to perform recitals this and next week at the Celebrity Series of Boston, the piano series of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, and Carnegie Hall. These concerts have now been postponed to 2022.

His recital program will remain the same and includes Szymanowski’s Piano Sonata No. 3, Op. 36; Debussy’s Pour le piano; Prokofiev’s Sarcasms; and Brahms’ Piano Sonata No. 3 in F minor, Op. 5.

“Following a recent elbow injury, I have been advised to postpone the performance to avoid exacerbating the problem, and have with great disappointment agreed to focus on my health and recovery over the coming weeks,” wrote Trifonov. “Many thanks for your understanding.”

Born in Russia in 1991, Trifonov began his music training at the age of five, going on to attend Moscow’s Gnessin School of Music studying with Tatiana Zelikman. He also studied at the Cleveland Institute of Music with Sergei Babayan.

As one of the world’s most in-demand recitalists, Trifonov was described by London's The Times, as “without question the most astounding pianist of our age.”

We wish him a speedy recovery!
