Kammerkonzert - Rezital

Gautier Capuçon and Daniil Trifonov

Our artist in residence in concert with his artist friend.

About the Concert

"My cello is comrade, lover, confidant, psychologist and mirror of the soul all in one."
What Gautier Capuçon says about his instrument could just as easily come from his close artist friend, pianist Daniil Trifonov. Both are not only virtuosos of their instruments, but also fascinate with the intensity and passion with which they interact with them, the music and of course the audience. For this concert they have brought highly demanding and at the same time immensely personal works for cello and piano: Prokofiev wrote his sonata for the cello icon Rostropovich, and behind almost every note one senses the threat to which musicians like him were exposed in the Stalin regime. Rachmaninov's sonata, in turn, was written as a thank-you to his doctor, who had brought him out of a deep depression through a hypnosis treatment. From darkness to light, one could describe how it proceeds musically.

At the invitation of the Dresden Philharmonic.

Daniil Trifonov


"He has everything and more, ... tenderness and also the demonic element. I've never heard anything like it," enthuses Martha Argerich about her colleague Daniil Trifonov, one of the most brilliant and successful pianists of our time. For almost fourteen years, audiences around the world have been enjoying his interpretations as a solo artist, chamber music partner and accompanist. He will be making a stop at the Kulturpalast with his good friend Gautier Capuçon on their joint European tour.
