Daniil Trifonov plays Schumann, Shostakovich and Stravinsky: a rare London solo recital from the most talked-about pianist of his generation.
Trifonov is still only in his mid-20s, but critics are already running out of words to describe his playing: This solo recital places him firmly in the Russian virtuoso tradition.
Stravinsky’s Three Pieces from Petrushka and Schumann’s Kreisleriana are both touchstones of master-pianism. But what adds another dimension to this recital is Trifonov’s choice of Schumann’s Kinderszenen and Shostakovich’s Preludes and Fugues: music to stretch mind and soul, as well as the fingers. As that same critic put it in October 2015, ’Trifonov’s playing has it all‘.
Shostakovich Selections from 24 Preludes and Fugues:
No 7 in A major
No 2 in A minor
No 5 in D major
No 24 in D minor
Stravinsky Three Movements from Petrushka
