As a teenager Daniil Trifonov absorbed lessons from the recordings of Sergei Rachmaninov, lessons that fed the creative process of his latest Deutsche Grammophon project. Destination Rachmaninov – Departure is the first of two albums comprising Trifonov's cycle of the great Russian composer's piano concertos. Featuring Nos.2 and 4, along with Rachmaninov's solo piano transcriptions of three movements from Bach's Violin Partita in E major, the new recording is set for release on 12 October 2018. Together with the second album, Destination Rachmaninov – Arrival (to be released in October 2019), it documents a journey of artistic exploration, one made in company with the Philadelphia Orchestra and its music director Yannick Nézet-Séguin.
