Critical acclaim for Daniil Trifonov's Verbier Festival recital
Published: 06 August 2012
received a phenomenal response from audience and critics for his debut at the Verbier Festival. In a five star review, Michael Church in the Financial Times
commented of his recital of Debussy and Chopin:
"Trifonov’s recital was breathtaking. Argerich last year told the FT she had never before heard a touch like his, and all I can do is concur: it’s not just a matter of precision and weighting, it’s a unique amalgam of fastidious tenderness and seemingly unfettered wildness. After two exquisite Debussy Images, he gave an account of Chopin’s complete Etudes that was truly revelatory: his emotional restraint – and frugality with the pedal – made the lyrical ones all the more moving, while his preternatural dexterity lent the finger-twisters a rare grace.
Trifonov's recital is available to watch for free for the next three weeks, on Medici TV.
