About

Since winning first prize at both the International Tchaikovsky Competition and Rubinstein Competition in 2011 aged just 20, Daniil Trifonov has established himself as the world’s most exciting young pianist. In 2016, he was awarded Gramophone’s Artist of the Year and his career continues to go from strength to strength.

For his debut Mariinsky recording he presented a thrilling account of Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto no.1, along with a unique selection of recital repertoire, which received rapturous praise across the classical music press.

The vinyl version of the album also includes Trifonov’s performance of Mussorgsky’s "Gopak" from The Fair at Sorochyntsi, recorded at the original sessions and available physically for the first time.

“His recording breaks new ground. It confirms, if confirmation was necessary, that St. Petersburg’s Orchestra of the Mariinsky Theatre is a major-league ensemble, and it represents another jewel in the crown of the new Mariinsky label.”
- Boston Globe

“One of the most exhilarating recordings of the Tchaikovsky concerto I’ve heard in years”
- Record Review, BBC Radio 3

“Trifonov’s combination of delicacy and fire leaves an indelible impression in this debut recording with the Mariinsky.” - The Observer

“Outstanding...he forces one to listen to these works anew, the sure sign of greatness.” - IRR
