The pianist Daniil Trifonov is forced to cancel performances in the UK due to visa issues.

What’s Up?: The USA-based Russian pianist Daniil Trifonov has had a season of performance cancellations in the UK due to difficulties acquiring a visa. Most recently, the Philharmonia Orchestra announced a substitute on November 26th for Triifonov’s scheduled London appearance. This cancellation follows numerous others, despite “timely and concerted efforts.” No explanation has been offered, including from Trifonov’s management.

Refresher: Born in 1991, the Grammy award-winning pianist Daniil Trifonov has been lauded as “without question the most astounding pianist of our age” by the London Times. He rose to fame after winning the Arthur Rubinstein and International Tchaikovsky Competitions in 2011, followed by numerous others. He regularly performs worldwide and was recently made a Chevalier de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres by the government of France.

Digging Deeper: Although the UK may be off the table for the time being, fans can catch Trifonov this month playing in the US, Spain, France and Germany. Fingers’ crossed the UK government grants him re-entry soon
