While Daniil Trifonov has established his reputation as a versatile pianist, demonstrating in his concerts and recordings an aptitude for the music of Frédéric Chopin, Pyotr Il'yich Tchaikovsky, and Sergey Rachmaninov, his talents for virtuosic brilliance and fantastic speed, as well as his deeply reflective character, seem ready-made for Franz Liszt's Transcendental Etudes, S. 139. This 2016 Deutsche Grammophon release shows Trifonov in his element, executing the most difficult passages with extraordinary flair, while reserving his lyricism and introspection for Liszt's poetic meditations. For a taste of Trifonov's brilliance, try track five of disc one, the famous Feux follets, which Trifonov plays with dazzling technique and a light touch. Also included in this double CD are Liszt's Two Concert Etudes, S. 145, the Three Concert Etudes, S. 144, and the Grandes Études de Paganini, S. 141, which make up the second CD. An example of Liszt's poetic side can be found in track five of disc two, Un Sospiro, in which sparkling arpeggios are merged with a long-breathed melody, characteristic of Liszt's passionate Romanticism. For a special treat, try the final track, Paganini Etude No. 6, which is a set of variations on Niccolò Paganini's most famous Caprice in A minor, which many composers have exploited. These recordings were made in September 2015 at the Siemensvilla in Berlin, and the acoustics of the concert room provide appropriate resonance for Trifonov's powerful playing, yet his softest notes are clearly audible in these superb recordings.

Hi-Res Booklet
First you think : “here we go... yet agaaaaain another recording of Chopin’s two concertos”, then you read ‘world premiere’ in the description. Surprising, isn’t it? And yet, this is the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth! This world premiere is describing the brand new orchestrations realised by Mikhail Pletnev. These re-orchestrations give prominence to the much more chamber-like aspect of the accompaniment, which admittedly is a little pale and formulaic in the version that we’ve known for almost two centuries. Pletnev has moderated the music score, thinning out some parts while not changing a single note: the piano part remains the same, and in the orchestra nothing changes apart from the instrumental assignation. In addition to those two concertos that are much more colorful, the pianist Daniil Trifonov offers us a handful of tributes to Chopin by his peers and successors: Schumann, whose admiration for the Polish composer wasn’t reciprocated, Grieg, Barber and Tchaikovsky, and most of all Mompou’s splendid series of Variations on a Theme of Chopin. New from old, but always for the best we won’t hasten to add. © SM/Qobuz
