Daniil Trifonov

Saturday 30 August 2014

Stravinsky Serenade in A
Ravel ‘Noctuelles’, ‘Oiseaux tristes’, ‘Une barque sur l’océan’ and ‘Alborada del gracioso’ from Miroirs
Liszt 12 Transcendental Studies

Famed for his pyrotechnic playing, and for his effortless poetic pianism, multi-award-winning young Russian virtuoso Daniil Trifonov brings The Queen's Hall 2014 concerts to a thrilling conclusion, having gripped Festival audiences for the past two years with his expressive intensity and bold insights.

He returns with a recital combining breaktaking virtuosity with sublime poetry. Birdsong, marine evocations and Spanish fireworks all feature in Ravel's exquisite piano suite Miroirs, while Liszt's Transcendental Studies push a performer's technical abilities to their limits in richly Romantic music, full of tempestuous brilliance and emotional intensity. Trifonov opens his recital with the neo-Classical elegance of Stravinsky's festive Serenade in A.

A remarkable pianist with a fearless and magnetic stage presence
