Daniil Trifonov is one of the few pianists to have recorded Liszt's concert Etudes in one concentrated period and the first to record them complete for Deutsche Grammophon. Trifonov's approach to Liszt is informed by the legacy of the Russian school of piano playing in which he was raised. "Liszt's technical virtuosity is just a means to evoke extremes of emotion," observes Trifonov. "His compositions can be described as dynamic depictions of the spiritual experiences of a Romantic soul."
