Just in: Trifonov cancels Argerich with arm pain

Tonight’s concert by Daniil Trifonov and his teacher Sergey Babayan at Martha Argerich’s Hamburg festival has been cancelled.

An arm injury has put Trifonov out of action, ‘probably also for his next few concerts.’

We wish Daniil a swift recovery.


  • Hans says:

    He’s due to play Rachmaninoff No.2 with the Berlin Phil & Petrenko at the Waldbuhne on Saturday.

  • Giora says:

    Bicycles and scooters are very dangerous for virtuosos…

  • TrifonovFan says:

    Wishing Daniil a complete speedy recovery!

  • Franz Sherbet says:

    ironic, a cancellation at an Argerich festival that is not Argerich festival lol

  • TITUREL says:

    Poor Daniil has aged badly, at least in this photo.

    • Tony Magee says:

      That’s not Daniil Trifonov in the photo. It’s his teacher Sergei Babayan. Daniil can be seen on the left, in the photo on main page.
