It’s been a good month for visiting pianists in Chicago with Igor Levit and Nickolai Lugansky among others. That trend continues with Daniil Trifonov who returns for a recital Sunday at Symphony Center. The young Russian combines a remarkable technical arsenal with interpretations of uncommon depth. His program will offer music of Schumann (Kinderszenen, Toccata, Kreisleriana), selections from Shostakovich’s 24 Preludes and Fugues and Stravinsky’s Three Movements from Petrushka. Concert time is 3 p.m. at Symphony Center.; 312-294-3000.


With John Nelson’s Chicago Bach Project on hiatus this year, the Chicago Chorale is filling the gap nicely with a Lenten performance of Bach’s Mass in B minor.  Bruce Tammen leads his superb singers along with the Haymarket Opera Orchestra 3 p.m. Sunday at Rockefeller Chapel.
