‘Trifonov’s virtuosity is different. It’s elegant and purposeful…’ The Guardian

 

After his triumph in the final of the International Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow in 2011, Russian pianist Daniil Trifonov has captivated the music world with his unique blend of powerful furor and dexterity.  He caused storms everywhere he performed: 'he has tenderness and also the demonic element,' thus exclaimed Martha Argerich, 'I never heard anything like that'.  His début at Verbier Festival was described in Süddeutsche Zeitung as 'a real culture shock'.  His Wigmore Hall début made as 'an event of possible historical significance.' (The Times)

 

Obsessed with the colourful sound world of Scriabin in his early years, Trifonov has won multiple awards and seen his career in meteoric rise.  Signed an exclusive recording contract with Deutsche Grammophon, he has since released recordings that also caused sensation among music lovers.  'A staggering display of unbounded virtuosity and vision' as The Sunday Times notes his Rachmaninov recording.

 

Trifonov’s Hong Kong début will see him perform his dearly-loved Chopin and two variations on the music of the poet of the piano: one by the last romantic Rachmaninov and, lesser-known but equally tempting, by Catalan composer Mompou.  Get on with the 'Trifonov hype'!
