#2 is Daniil Trifonov's recital at Carnegie Hall - This was an astounding performance. Trifonov's sheer musical artistry, his touch, phrasing, articulation, and dynamics, are head and shoulders above every other pianist on the contemporary scene. That would be thrilling enough. Beyond that, his probing and poetic musical thinking, the way his playing sounds like the most logical way for the music to go while also being emotionally and aesthetically gripping, marks him with historic greatness.
