Notes & Reviews:

Daniil Trifonov, winner of the 2011 International Tchaikovsky Competition, is probably the world's most exciting young pianist. On his first Mariinsky recording, he joins Valery Gergiev for a scintillating performance of Tchaikovsky's Piano Concerto No 1. Trifonov also presents a selection of recital repertoire including music by Tchaikovsky, Chopin and Liszt transcriptions of Schubert and Schumann lieder. In 2011, Trifonov gave his début with the London Symphony Orchestra and has since performed with the Vienna Philharmonic and the Mariinsky Orchestra, as well as touring throughout the USA, Europe and the Far East. In the coming season he will make débuts with the New York Philharmonic, Boston Symphony and Chicago Symphony orchestras, as well as performing recitals at Salle Pleyel, Carnegie Hall, Suntory Hall and Wigmore Hall.

The New York Times
Mr. Trifonov has scintillating technique and a virtuosic flair. He is also a thoughtful artist and, when so moved, he can play with soft-spoken delicacy, not what you associate with competition conquerors.

The Times
With a clutch of competition successes behind him, and a diary bulging with international dates ahead of him, Trifonov is very hot property.

The Independent
The way Daniil Trifonov played, you'd say he was a mature master, rather than a mere 20-year-old. Power in spades, crystalline passagework, and a pearlised singing tone: he's already got it all.

BBC Music Magazine, December 2012
His special blend of attributes is on display here, not least his technical ease, exquisite control and rich resource of colour. In the Tchaikovsky [Concerto], Trifonov's playing ignites when it has to, but is generally notable for its dynamic phrasing and variety of articulation. For such an overworked piece it sounds remarkably fresh.

International Record Review, October 2012
Last year's winner [International Tchaikovsky Competition] 21-year old Daniil Trifonov is truly exceptional. Trifonov ... the orchestral support is first-rate ... Even more impressive are the solo works included here which display all the variety of Trifonov's tonal range ... Seemingly there is nothing that Trifonov cannot do. Trifonov may be at the start of his career but he is already a mature artist. His youth brings an overwhelming energy which seems to blow the cobwebs off everything he performs: he forces one to listen to these works anew, the sure sign of greatness.

The Observer, August 2012
Trifonov's combination of delicacy and fire leaves an indelible impression in this debut recording with the Mariinsky. The Tchaikovsky, scorching and heart-rending but never bombastic, is paired with solo Liszt transcriptions.

American Record Guide, January/February 2013
Almost as night follows day, another Tchaikovsky competition winner means another recording of the first concerto. Trifonov delivers what people have come to expect: fluent, technically skilled playing, with a few, but not too many, unconventional touches. Hence it can be regarded as "fresh" and "spontaneous" without crossing the line into "eccentric" or "willful".
