After an album brilliantly thought by Deutche Grammophon, the young Russian pianist defends his vision of the romantic composer in recital at the Philharmonie de Paris.
At only 26 years old, the Russian virtuoso Daniil Trifonov is definitely one of the most interesting piano talents of his generation. Of course, it will always be to consider that we do too much around a musician who can still mature. Nevertheless, the intelligence of its programs, even when they seem to turn to obsession, forces admiration.
His recent album Chopin, aptly called Evocations, is the best illustration. Because if the passion of the young man for the Polish composer is not very original (he devotes an extensive cycle of recitals to Carnegie Hall), he knew how to dose and decline with subtlety. Chatting together are the concertos - sublimated here by the Mahler Chamber Orchestra and Pletnev's baton with a Fantasy-Impromptu of rare delicacy, and several purely pianistic tributes from other composers.
Like those haunting and too rare variations of the Catalan Federico Mompou on Prelude No. 7 of his eldest, or those, much more well-known, of Rachmaninoff on Prelude No. 10. Two jewels served with great style by Trifonov and which are also featured in this Philharmonic recital, this time centered on Sonata No. 2.
