Notes & Reviews:

One of today's most popular and most critically-acclaimed pianists, Daniil Trifonov records and album of Rachmaninov Variations. Album includes solo performances of Variations on a Theme of Corelli, Variations on a Theme of Chopin and Trifonov's own composition, Rachmaniana. Also included is the Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini for which Yannick Nézet-Séguin and the Philadelphia Orchestra join. Extensive US touring will take place throughout the 2015-16 season.

BBC Music Magazine, December 2015
The Philadelphians under Yannick NTzet-STguin provide sterling support for Trifonov's stunning pyrotechnics. There are also moments of magical repose, Trifonov achieving astonishing beauty of tone and atmosphere in the almost impressionistic harmonies of Variations 11 and 17... this is clearly an outstanding version in an already overcrowded field.

New York Times, 11th December 2015
As if a sumptuous, tender account of the "Rhapsody on a Theme by Paganini" were not enough, Mr. Trifonov offers uncannily fine interpretations of Rachmaninoff's variations on themes by Chopin and Corelli.
