  • Daniil Trifonov piano

Piano connoisseurs and music-lovers of any era would give thanks for poetic artistry of the kind delivered by Daniil Trifonov. The Russian pianist, born in 1991, allies total technical command of his instrument to a unique feeling for expressive contrasts and musical drama. His interpretations appear to arise in the present moment, responsive to the subtlest change of mood and always alive to the piano’s endless possibilities of shading, colour and articulation.

Trifonov’s latest Wigmore Hall recital explores the legacy of Chopin in the shape of quintessential works by the Polish composer and of compositions built on themes from his Op. 28 Preludes.
