Daniil Trifonov - Carnegie: Perspectives recital was fascinating / The New York Times

Bookmark and Share

Through its coveted Perspectives program, Carnegie Hall invites outstanding artists to plan a season-long series of concerts. Most designees think big and go adventurous. At first glance it might seem that the Russian pianist Daniil Trifonov is playing it safe with his Perspectives series this season. Three of his seven programs are focused on Chopin, including the sold-out recital he played on Saturday to kick off the series, titled "Hommage à Chopin."

Actually, Mr. Trifonov's series looks wide-ranging and unusually rich, the Chopin concerts included. At 26, he has already proven not just one of the most spectacularly virtuosic pianists of the day but an uncommonly thoughtful artist. Saturday's recital was fascinating.  PHOTO: Hiroyuki Ito for The New York Times
