Daniil Trifonov's The Carnegie Recital, is the Russian pianist's debut album as an exclusive Deutsche Grammophon recording artist. Last February – the day before his sold-out main-stage Carnegie Hall recital debut –the young Russian pianist signed with the illustrious label, and the first release of their new partnership is a live recording of that performance. Capturing his accounts of Liszt's formidable B-minor Sonata, Scriabin's "Sonata-Fantasy" in G-sharp minor, Chopin's 24 Preludes, and, as an encore, the second of Medtner's Four Fairy Tales, the new disc has already scored a multitude of rave reviews in Europe; Germany's Bayerischer Rundfunk spoke for many in observing: "At 21, Daniil Trifonov has already cultivated a pianistic freedom that...will probably remain out of most pianists' reach all their lives." The U.S. release is timed to coincide with Trifonov's return to Carnegie Hall on February 6, when he will play Schumann's Symphonic Etudes alongside works by Ravel, Debussy, and Stravinsky.
