When Trifonov plays, time seems to stand still. Arising from the silence, his playing is outstanding and insightful, never predictable, but always rooted in the essence of the music. He is one of the most admired artists of our time.

Aged 31 and barely ten years since shaking up the piano world by winning the Rubinstein and Tchaikovsky Competitions, Daniil Trifonov is already regarded a legend. He is also a successful composer. For the vinyl edition of his Bach album released last year, which climbed to the top of the German classical music charts and was the world’s most streamed classical music album in 2021, the all-rounder released a canon he wrote in the style of Bach. Included in his November appearance are the lyrical, poetic Piano Concerto by Alexander Scriabin, composed in 1896, accompanied by the Orchestre National de France conducted by Cristian Măcelaru, the ensemble’s music director since 2020.
