Daniil Trifonov is a phenomenal pianist. The twenty-six-year-old Russian artist is already a star (not only among pianists of his own generation), sought after by the world’s most important musical organizations. He has been playing in public for nearly twenty years and has maintained the sweet musicality that he demonstrated as a child prodigy, while adding power, speed, and originality.
