Daniil Tri­fonov Pi­ano Recital Sept 23 — 7:30 pm

Na­tional Cen­ter for the Per­form­ing Arts

80-580 yuan Mo­ments be­fore Daniil Tri­fonov per­forms, pro­found si­lence in­vari­ably takes pos­ses­sion of his au­di­ence. Its in­ten­sity de­pends not on con­cert hall con­ven­tion; rather, it arises nat­u­rally from the Rus­sian pi­anist’s power to tran­scend the mun­dane and com­mu­ni­cate mu­sic’s time­less ca­pac­ity to bind com­mu­ni­ties to­gether. The Wash­ing­ton Post wrote of the “vis­ceral ex­pe­ri­ence” of hear­ing Tri­fonov’s play­ing; the Süd­deutsche Zeitung, mean­while, de­scribed his de­but con­cert at last year’s Ver­bier Fes­ti­val as “a real cul­ture shock”, such was its blend of po­etic in­sight, wit, nu­ance and in­ven­tive bril­liance.

St. Peters­burg Eif­man Bal­let Rodin

Sept 16 — 7:30 pm

Na­tional Cen­ter for the Per­form­ing Arts

160-880 yuan

Boris Eif­man’s bal­let Rodin tells about the life and work of two great sculp­tors: Au­guste Rodin and his dis­ci­ple, mis­tress and Muse — Camille Claudel. The story of their love is truly a tragic one. For over 15 years Rodin and Claudel were one in­te­gral whole, both sen­su­ously and cre­atively. The breakup of the lovers that en­sued even­tu­ally was a fa­tal blow to the men­tal health of Camille lead­ing to her tragic end. Half-for­got­ten, hard­ened, hope­lessly im­pe­cu­nious, Camille goes mad. A para­noiac idea of a con­spir­acy against her be­ing lead and in­spired by Rodin him­self in­ces­santly tor­ments the al­ready weak­ened mind of the wretched woman. When she died, she was com­pletely for­got­ten by all and ev­ery­body.
