Joshua Bell & Daniil Trifonov

Mar 29, 2023


Two luminaries of their instruments team up for this joint recital at Symphony Center. Bell, whose recent Chicago performance was “profoundly lyrical and unflagging in emotional intensity” (Chicago Tribune), finds an ideal partner in Trifonov, “a remarkable artist” whose playing is “by turns daring and sensitive, impassioned and poetic” (The New York Times).
