DANIIL TRIFONOV, Piano
1st prize winner at the 13th Arthur Rubinstein International Master Piano Competition

Two of the great giants of 19th-century keyboard music frame this recital, with Liszt’s transcriptions of Schubert’s songs “Frühlingsglaube” and “Die Stadt” at the start and Chopin’s kaleidoscopic Op. 10 Studies, as a finale. In between, Daniil Trifonov plays Schubert’s sublime, deeply felt B flat major Sonata, the last of the sonatas that Schubert wrote only months before his death in 1828. It was just before his own death in 1893 that Tchaikovsky composed his 18 Pieces Op. 72, charming miniatures that he dedicated affectionately to friends past and present.
