Daniil Trifonov - Chopin Evocations is 90.5 WKAR: Classical New Release of the Month

Bookmark and Share

Pianist Daniil Trifonov's latest Deutsche Grammophon album - Chopin Evocations captures the magic of Chopin's music and traces its influence through the works of five other composers. On this double-disc set, 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.

On every last Friday of the month, Morning Edition and All Things Considered will feature a profile of a particular classical artist or ensemble's latest release - then WKAR: East Lansing MI will feature that recording throughout our monthly classical schedule as their 'Classical New Release of the Month.' We start our new series by showcasing one of the rising stars of the keyboard, pianist Daniil Trifonov.
