15 Dec. This 21-year-old Russian virtuoso musician is hailed as one of the brightest names of the next generation of pianists. His reputation for outstanding performances, musical insight and expressive intensity has already surpassed the attention he received when last year he won medals at three of the world’s most prestigious competitions: the Chopin Competition in Warsaw, the Rubinstein Competition in Tel Aviv, and the Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow.
He has already debuted with such orchestras as the Vienna Philharmonic, the London Symphony Orchestra and the Marinsky Orchestra. In the words of the great pianist Martha Argerich “he has everything and more. What he does with his hands is technically incredible. It’s also his touch – he has tenderness and also the demonic element. I never heard anything like that.”
In his Rome recital Trifonov plays music by Schubert, Chopin and one of his own compositions. Istituzione Universitaria dei Concerti.
