Carnegie Hall

The first free live webcasts in the partnership between Carnegie Hall and medici.tv – concerts by Joyce DiDonato, Anne-Sophie Mutter and the duo of Leonidas Kavakos & Yuja Wang – were a rousing, audience-building success. Now the initial series culminates with a recital by Russian piano virtuoso Daniil Trifonov on Tuesday December 9, at 8:00 pm EST.

The 23-year-old Trifonov has proven that he is more than just a Wunderkind. For his return to Carnegie Hall, the pianist’s program combines masterpieces by three giants of the keyboard. Liszt’s transcription of Bach’s Fantasy and Fugue for Organ in G minor, Beethoven’s final sonata -the Piano Sonata No. 32 in C minor, Op. 111- and Liszt's Transcendental Etudes.

The Carnegie Hall webcasts on medici.tv have reached 484,930 video views within a month, with 16,000 videos views per day and almost 700 video views per hour. Some 68,000 connections were hit during the live broadcasts, a number representing on average nearly 23,000 people per live concert.
