Great Performers

Virtuoso Recitals

Daniil Trifonov, piano

When pianist Daniil Trifonov burst onto the scene less than a decade ago, he had just won first prize in both the Rubinstein Competition in Israel and the Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow. Since then, he has rocketed to the top, and is in great demand worldwide as a concerto soloist, recitalist, and chamber music partner. Critics and audiences alike have hailed him as a force of nature, citing his scintillating technique and his virtuosic flair. His all-Bach program begins with transcriptions and arrangements by illustrious composers who were also performers. It concludes with The Art of Fugue, one of Bach’s final works, an imaginative demonstration of the myriad possibilities of the fugue format.

Presented in association with the New York Philharmonic.

Alice Tully Hall, 1941 Broadway.

Jin Won

Born in South Korea, celebrated performer Jin Won spent 15 years living in India training in classical Kathak dance and tabla percussion.

Jin has been praised by the New York Times as “an exuberant dancer whose musicality transforms her dancing into something primal.” As a soloist,?Jin?has performed in Belgium, Canada, and Korea.?Since moving to America eight years ago,?she?has collaborated with Korean and Arab traditional artists and expanded her use of percussion instruments from around the world. Her latest piece blends classical Western music, ancient Indian chanting, and electronica.

Meklit: Antidote

Known for her electric stage presence and her galvanizing concerts, Meklit has rocked stages from Addis Ababa (where she is a household name) to San Francisco (her beloved base), as well as NYC, London, Montreal, Nairobi, Rome, and Cairo. The Ethio-American singer and composer returns to the Atrium with her new body of music, Antidote. Written as an ode to all that keeps us going in troubled times, the songs center on connection, collective unity, music, creativity, and the digging it takes to hold on to those life rafts that lift us. With Ethiopian jazz as a sonic palette, Antidote is grounded in Meklit’s work as a composer of migration music. In this Lincoln Center commission, Meklit previews songs for the community that called them forth.

Commissioned by Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts.

Andrea y Su Charanga: From ’76 to Now With Love

Opening Set by DJ Andy El Más Bailable

In the ’70s Charanga music—a smooth, creative, and extremely danceable form of Cuban salsa featuring flute and violins—exploded on the scene with the creation of Charanga ’76. The public loved the band and its female flute player, Andrea Brachfeld, who was at the center of attention. The first female flutist to play Charanga music in the U.S., Brachfeld burst into the spotlight and has been creating and playing this music, and other styles, ever since. After a brief hiatus from the music scene, Andrea Brachfeld and Son Charanga was created in 2003, coming out with Back With Sweet Passion on Latin Cool Records. Now the group has been reconfigured once again with Bill O’Connell on the piano, Ruben Rodriguez on the bass, Willie Martinez on drums, Chembo Corniel on the congas, violinists Sam Bardfeld and Ali Bello, and vocalists Robert Meir (currently with Charanga ’76), and Willy Torres. From decades of Charanga ’76 hits to Brachfeld’s original music, this band will reignite your passion and is sure to get you up and dancing.

Presented in collaboration with the NYU Music and Social Change Lab.

David Rubenstein Atrium, Broadway between 62nd and 63rd Streets.

FREE Seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis. For questions about accessibility or to request an accommodation, please contact [email protected] or 212.875.5375. For more information, please visit LincolnCenter.org/Atrium.

Flamenco Festival: Cuatro Gatos

Almost 20 years old, the Flamenco Festival has established itself as one of the most significant annual Spanish cultural events in the United States, and the world’s biggest showcase for flamenco. Attracting 45,000 spectators in the United States alone in 2018, the touring festival also makes stops in Miami, Boston, and Washington, D.C. At the David Rubenstein Atrium, Oruco (flamenco dancer and percussionist), Eduardo Trassierra (guitarist), Pablo Martin Jones (percussionist and electronics), and Kiko Peña (vocalist) are the “Cuatro Gatos” (four cats) who will take the classic Flamenco Tablao, a club where flamenco is performed in Spain, and transform it with a contemporary twist. Similar to cabaret spaces, these clubs sprang up in the 1960s throughout Spain, replacing the cafés cantantes. Whether you’re a longtime aficionado or eager to see the Andalusian art form live, the festival will get your pulse racing.

Presented in collaboration with Flamenco Festival New York 20/20.

David Rubenstein Atrium, Broadway between 62nd and 63rd Streets.
