Live recordings from two of music’s most iconic stages – Venice’s Teatro la Fenice (2010) and Carnegie Hall (2013) - chart the meteoric rise of this phenomenal young “heir to Liszt” (Washington Post), from the period of his Chopin, Rubinstein and Tchaikovsky Competition triumphs to his landmark New York recital debut

Before Deutsche Grammophon signed Daniil Trifonov to the Yellow Label in 2013 and released the Carnegie Hall recital, Mirko Gratton in Italy had already spotted this immense talent, and issued a Chopin recital on Decca Classics in 2011.

An artist of breathtaking poise and theatricality.” - The Times

Even having seen it, one cannot quite believe it. Such is the artistry of pianist-composer Daniil Trifonov.” -

A pianist ahead of his time.” - Washington Post

Trifonov's performance was a marvel, a mixture of exuberance and fabulous subtlety.” -  The Guardian

Virtuosity is one thing, youthful exuberance another. Many aspiring talents survive on just one of these qualities. A lucky few have both. No one combines them with musical maturity the way Daniil Trifonov does. The technical brilliance is always at the service of his powerful imagination. The exuberance is controlled by his natural musicianship. What makes him such a phenomenon is the ecstatic quality he brings to his performances – an all-consuming intensity-of-belonging on the public platform that translates into something thrilling, absorbing, inspiring.” - The Financial Times
