It wasn't easy to choose, but here are my 10 favorite Cincinnati arts highlights from 2019. Here's a doubleheader as Russian pianist Daniil Trifonov, 28, wowed in Beethoven's "Emperor" Concerto with the CSO on May 3. Then, on May 5, he played the U.S. premiere of his own Piano Quintet at the Linton Music Series.

Trifonov's new album "Destination Rachmaninov – Arrival" follows the pianist's highly acclaimed album "Destination Rachmaninov – Departure" and this new recording concludes his Rachmaninov project. In addition to the Piano Concertos, this album features a selection of Daniil Trifonov's own Rachmaninov transcriptions including Rachmaninov's famous "Vocalise" and virtuosic "The Silver Sleigh Bells". Finally, the product features an unreleased track of the heart-rending "Vocalise" in an exclusively long version.
