Winner of the Tchaikovsky and Rubinstein competitions, 26-year-old Russian pianist Daniil Trifonov has astounded audiences around the world. Now Caramoor audiences have a chance to experience this “brilliant, uncommonly poetic soloist” (The New York Times). Trifonov’s 2016 album of Liszt etudes, Transcendental, ended up on numerous year-end lists and his sold-out Carnegie Hall recital last December was streamed to a worldwide audience on Facebook and medici.tv. Martha Argerich proclaimed Trifonov’s playing has “everything and more.” With “monstrous technique and lustrous tone” (The New Yorker), Trifonov tackles a challenging program, including Schumann’s Kinderszenen (“Scenes from Childhood”) and the composer’s “favorite work,” Kreisleriana, as well as works from two Russian giants—Stravinsky and Shostakovich.

“Daniil Trifonov’s playing has it all … he leaves you struggling for superlatives.” – The Guardian

Manuel García, Rossini’s opening night tenor in Il barbiere di Siviglia, was also a prolific composer and singing teacher. In 1830-31 he wrote a series of brilliant one-act “operettas” with piano accompaniment, to be performed by his students. Un avvertimento ai gelosi (“Advice to the Jealous”)–performed here as edited by Teresa Radomski–showcases the bel canto virtuosity and expressive flair that were García’s hallmarks as a performer and instructor.

Two titans of the Romantic repertoire close out our 2017 summer season. Liszt’s tone poem Les préludes opens the program followed by French pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet’s characteristic “fiery account” (The Washington Post) of the composer’s Piano Concerto No. 2. Robert Schumann’s Second Symphony tells the story of his personal triumph over adversity. Set in the bright key of C Major, this uplifting symphony brings the Caramoor summer season to a properly sunny close.

“[Jean-Yves Thibaudet]’s a master colorist and a great communicator, able to reduce a large concert hall to an intimate chamber of intent listeners.” – The Seattle Times

“There are long, long, long melodies such as no-one had ever made before,” wrote Giuseppe Verdi of Bellini’s unique gift. Wagner was moved to the same incantatory repetition: “Song, song, and once again song, ye Germans,” he urged in an essay praising the hypnotic Italian master.  Bellini poured his melody also into the intimate vessel of piano-accompanied songs – sometimes developing ideas that later found their way into his operas. The Bel Canto Young Artists join Director of Opera Will Crutchfield in this tribute to the father of modern melody.

In its four short years of existence, the Los Angeles-based Argus Quartet, this season’s Ernst Stiefel String Quartet-in-Residence, has performed everywhere from Carnegie Hall and the Muziekgebouw aan ‘t IJ in Amsterdam to the Hear Now Music Festival in Los Angeles and New Orleans’ Birdfoot Festival. As part of their residency at Caramoor, in addition to their public performances throughout the year, Argus serves as music mentors, lending their time and talents to Caramoor’s Student Strings program in secondary schools with a classroom-based program of concerts, conversations, and performance clinics.  Their varied program today contains masterworks by two prolific proponents of the string quartet—Haydn and Beethoven—and a world premiere by Donald Crockett, commissioned by Caramoor specifically for the Argus Quartet as part of our dedication to building “A String Quartet Library for the 21st Century.”

“They played with supreme melodic control and total authority.” – Calgary Herald
Program

Haydn  String Quartet in C major, Op. 74 No. 1
Crockett  String Quartet No. 4, Traveling Symphony (World Premiere Commissioned by Caramoor Center for Music and the Arts) Beethoven  String Quartet No. 15 in A Minor, Op. 132

“This new string quartet, my fourth, is written especially for the young and highly talented Argus Quartet, and with their style, sound and sense of drama very much in mind.  It is a narrative piece, essentially a compact opera (mostly) without words, set in a post-civilization era and based loosely on recent end-of-the-world-as-we-know-it works of literary fiction.  And Shakespeare.  At times somber and agitated in tone, this ‘opera’ for string quartet is nonetheless ultimately optimistic, a collection of impressions and recollections about finding a way forward in a darkening landscape.” – Donald Crockett

Vivaldi’s Four Seasons has enchanted generations of music lovers with its vivid musical images of the natural world. Caramoor’s bucolic surroundings is the ideal setting to experience this work. The legendary tango composer, Astor Piazzolla was inspired by Vivaldi’s masterpiece to create his own “Four Seasons of Buenos Aires,” which Artist-in-Residence, Jason Vieaux will perform with bandoneonist Julien Labro. Vieaux has chosen Vivaldi’s beloved Guitar Concerto in D Major to open this program.

“Vieaux opened ears with his rhythmic clarity and remarkable left-hand facility … He made the single guitar seem like a body of instruments at work in music full of the emotion of loss.” – The Philadelphia Inquirer
