Recently named Gramophone 2016 Artist of the Year, Russian piano virtuoso Daniil Trifonov stopped by Houston Public Media to talk with Catherine Lu about his upcoming performances of Robert Schumann's Piano Concerto with the Houston Symphony, and the making of Transcendental, his new CD of complete Liszt etudes for Deutsche Grammophon.
