Sunday December 8th, h. 8:45 p.m.
Fazioli Concert Hall
An extraordinary event will be held on December 8th at the Fazioli Concert Hall.
The protagonist will be the young russian pianist Daniil Trifonov, probably the most celebrated pianist of his generation in the world. The concert will be part of the film that the well known film maker Christopher Nupen wants to dedicate to Trifonov's unbelivable talent. As the historical productions of Allegro Films about acqueline du Pré, Vladimir Ashkenazy, Daniel Barenboim, Zubin Metha, André Segovia and many others, we can assume that this film too will be destined to go down in the history of its kind.

What will it be?
An intimate portrait of Daniil Trifonov, in the Allegro Films mould — a genre pioneered by Christopher Nupen and his colleagues — and which is thought of in many high places as the most successful way of presenting classical music on television. That is to say: the discovery on film --- and announcement to the world --- of unknown, exuberant, youthful, super-talent in a well made and well constructed film.
"Christopher Nupen pioneered a style of filming music and music making for television in which his excellence has rarely been equalled and never excelled. Of that genre he is the undoubted master. His films will endure forever as reference documents to the executant's art in the 20th century and as constant sources of musical delight."
Jeremy Isaacs (Chief Executive, Channel Four Television until 1987 then General Director, The Royal Opera House, Covent Garden)
"The best programming of any kind ever transmitted on the PBS Network, not excluding Watergate or the news."
Newton Minow (Federal Communications Commission chairman, speaking of the Here To Make Music series).

By Anne Midgette, Monday, January 21, 12:28 AM
".....The program signaled that Trifonov, who won the Tchaikovsky Competition in 2011, is more than just a technical virtuoso — though he is that, in spades. To resort to a cliche — and most descriptions of Trifonov’s playing wind up sounding like cliches — it would be fine to hear him play the phone book, if he found a way to do so."
The film maker
Christopher Nupen. Pioneer — and widely regarded as the continuing leader in his field
"Christopher Nupen seems to me to be working at the highest level which television is capable of reaching and to be the finest maker of classical music films that we have".
Sir Isaiah Berlin (Oxford philosopher and historian of ideas)
".... Christopher Nupen, to whom all music and musicians owe a debt for a lifetime of producing the finest films that have been made about our art. His films win friends for music every time they are shown. They are internationally acclaimed and, together, they comprise a lasting monument in documenting the peaks of high achievement of the musical scene in the latter part of the twentieth century."
Sir Denis Forman (Chairman, Granada Television, London)
Christopher Nupen has been five times nominated for Classical music DVD of the Year Award in the past 7 years and won it 4 years out of 5 — an unprecedented achievement.
Since Trifonov’s achievements, both technical and artistic, are such a source of amazed wonder to musicians, critics and the public alike, the film will contain a high percentage of performance but lit, shot and edited in the way for which Allegro films has become famous — and unlike what is generally seen on television.
Trifonov embodies a high moment in the history of piano playing which makes this project both historically and artistically important. The film should be made and it should be made now because nobody knows how long any high moment will last.
Allegro Films has made much loved portrait films with Jacqueline du Pré, Vladimir Ashkenazy, Daniel Barenboim, Pinchas Zukerman, Itzhak Perlman, Zubin Mehta, Evgeny Kissin, Gidon Kremer, Andrés Segovia, Nathan Milstein, Alice Sommer and others.
They also made The Trout, the most frequently broadcast classical music film in the history of television.
Daniil Trifonov has won both the Tchaikovsky and Rubinstein competitions.
