Notes & Reviews:

Pianist Daniil Trifonov, whose playing the New York Times called "simply electrifying," plays Franz Liszt's complete concert etudes on his new two-disc album, Transcendental, released by Deutsche Grammophon. Trifonov recorded his visionary interpretations within the space of five days, a feat in keeping with the tireless energy and superhuman spirit of Liszt himself. In addition to the Transcendental Etudes, the recital includes the Paganini Etudes and five Concert Etudes.

The Guardian, 21st September 2016
Trifonov is already an exceptionally thoughtful interpreter, with musicianship that more than matches his technical gifts...while there is never any doubting the brilliance of Trifonov's playing, that is only the starting point; the delicacy and transparency of his performances are often more striking than their moments of rampaging virtuosity.

Sunday Times, 2nd October 2016
These two enthralling discs show exactly why the 25-year-old Russian Klaviertiger is the current darling of the piano world...Trifonov leaves one open-mouthed at the Mendelssohnian wit and dexterity of Gnomenreigen, and at the sheer playfulness of Liszt's homages to Paganini. A young player, yes, but already a master.

Wall Street Journal, 3rd October 2016
Trifonov's set possesses a wonderful lightness of being. Lyrical works like "Il lamento," one of Liszt's most beautiful "Concert +tudes," are characterized by understated simplicity and tender feeling...And his "Transcendental +tudes" are a wonder of seeming spontaneity and breathtaking ease.

Gramophone Magazine, October 2016
Trifonov's is the best kind of virtuoso playing, where one is hardly aware of the notes being played, allowing one to simply bask in the genius of Liszt's musical narrative and the transcendant execution of an awesomely gifted pianist.

BBC Music Magazine, November 2016
Trifonov's approach is to search out through rounded and constantly beautiful piano tone the music's pre-Debussyian side - a legitimate take on Liszt's radical streak, keeping any risk of meretricious display at arm's length and bringing rich rewards in the atmospheric mood-pieces.
