Notes & Reviews:

Opinions differ on whether he is the heir of Horowitz, Richter or Kissin but in that line of giants, critical opinion is unanimous: Daniil Trifonov is THE great Russian pianist for the 21st Century.

In the past thirty years, the honor of a live Carnegie Hall recital recording has been bestowed by DG upon only two other pianists: Mikhail Pletnev and Lang Lang. Daniil Trifonov now joins this elite company for his very first recording on the Yellow Label.

'This hall has some magic, turbulent atmosphere and when the audience comes in it just becomes completely crazy. They create such an exciting spirit and they give energy, they give wings to the performer. It's incredible' Daniil Trifonov.

Recorded in February this year, this richly contrasted and spectacularly virtuosic program includes much-loved classics by Chopin and Liszt and is the perfect album to introduce the world to DG's newest piano star.

Born 22 years ago in the Russian city of Nizhny Novgorod, Trifonov is already the winner of the Grand Prix, First prize and a Gold Medal in the XIV International Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow (2011).

Beyond his phenomenal technique, he is a distinctly Russian artist: an intense, soulful musician in the great Russian tradition whose presentation and repertoire set him apart from all other young piano stars of today.

Gramophone Magazine, December 2013
What's impressive here is not just the magnificent and reactive pianism on show but also his maturity. His Chopin Preludes possess a stunning elan...Perhaps it's no coincidence that Trifonov is also a composer; he has a composerly grasp of the structure of all the works here.

The Telegraph, 21st November 2013
The torrents of octaves in ...the Liszt are astonishing in their brilliance, boldness and bravura. Rather, the key thing here is that Trifonov can harness his digital strength, stamina and skill to a highly developed sense of the music's expressive substance...a captivating recital brimful of character.

The Times, 4th October 2013
Portions of the Liszt B minor Sonata surge and roar like a hydroelectric power station. Filigree lines in Scriabin's Sonata Fantasy in G sharp minor decoratively glint in the moonlight. In between the gorgeous spurts we need more glue to help camouflage the music's episodic structures.
