Brilliant young Russian pianist Daniil Trifonov, Gramophone’s 2016 Artist of the Year, presents a tantalizing all-Bach solo recital in Alice Tully Hall. The first half embraces Bach’s Chaconne for piano left hand, along with the playful and joyous Prelude, Gavotte, and Gigue from his Violin Partita No. 3 and the arresting Fantasie and Fugue in G minor. The program concludes with the monumental Art of Fugue, left incomplete upon the composer’s death, as the “uncommonly poetic” Trifonov (New York Times) pays homage to the pathos, humor, and gravity of Bach’s work.
