Daniil Trifonov is emerging as one of the brightest new names from the next generation of pianists. He was born in Nizhniy Novgorod, Russia in 1991, has studied music since he was five and has received numerous piano prizes. This release showcases this brilliant young talent.
“He's a classy player, approaching Chopin with beautiful tone, sophisticated and nuanced phrasing, and a rare sense of the composer's ineffable magic...He never lets fast passages descend into note spinning, but shapes everything melodically...The string orchestra arrangement is refreshing and the playing persuasive.”
