The Russian pianist Daniil Trifonov – named ›Artist of the Year‹ in 2016 by Grammophone Magazine and »most impressive pianist of our time« by the British newspaper ›The Times‹ – has impressed on many levels: as soloist, in the concert repertoire, as a chamber musician and also as a composer. He was awarded his first Grammy in 2018.
The various points along the journey through his 2018/19 season are remarkable: leading this almost 28-year old to perform with Jaap van Zweden and the New York Philharmonic Orchestra as well as taking him on tour with Sir Simon Rattle and the London Symphony Orchestra, for whom Trifonov is Artist in Residence. In addition, this versatile musician can also be heard in the Vienna Musikverein where – here too – he is Artist in Residence. Alongside performances of Rachmaninov’s 4th Piano Concerto with the Vienna Philharmonic – its Austrian premiere – are performances of his own piano concerto. As part of his residency with the Berlin Philharmonic, Trifonov can also be heard playing Scriabin’s Piano Concerto conducted by Andris Nelsons. With his regular partner, Matthias Goerne, Trifonov will also be giving a number of chamber music recitals. His solo programme, with works by Beethoven, Schumann and Prokofiev, is also part of his residencies in London, Vienna and Berlin, as well as in places such as New York, Milan, Luxembourg, Munich, Ljubljana, Bratislava, Zagreb and Graz. Further highlights include his return to Carnegie Hall with his long-time partner Valery Gergiev and the MET Orchestra, as well as the Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen.
Daniil Trifonov is an exclusive Artist for Deutsche Grammophon.
