Bookmark and Share

Pianist Daniil Trifonov's latest Deutsche Grammophon album captures the magic of Chopin's music and traces its influence through the works of five other composers. On this double-disc Chopin Evocations set, released on October 6, Trifonov performs Chopin's two piano concertos and a selection of some of his earliest and latest solo works as well as tributes to Chopin by Grieg, Mompou, Schumann, Tchaikovsky and Barber. This recording features world premiere recordings of new orchestrations of the Piano Concertos by Trifonov's fellow pianist-composer Mikhail Pletnev, who conducts the Mahler Chamber Orchestra in these renditions.
