On the heels of winning the XIV International Tchaikovsky Competition and the13th Arthur Rubinstein International Piano Master Competition, pianist Daniil Trifonov made his CIM professional debut in November 2011. Not only was he the youngest artist to perform in CIM’s Mixon Hall Masters Series at the age of 20, he is the only musician to do so while still attending CIM. Balancing study with a rigorous touring schedule, Mr. Trifonov earned his Artist Certificate from CIM in 2013 and continues his studies with Sergei Babayan in CIM’s Artist Diploma program.

This season, he takes the stage at CIM for another unprecedented debut, performing a benefit concert for the institution that helped shape him into a composer/virtuoso. The Cleveland Institute of Music Orchestra will premiere one of his original works.
