Chopin Evocations, a 2-CD album featuring world premiere recordings of Mikhail Pletnev’s orchestrations of the Chopin piano concertos as well as a range of solo works, from early (Variations on "La ci darem la mano" Op. 2) to late (Fantaisie-Impromptu Op. 66). Complementing the Chopin repertoire on
Evocations are pieces paying homage to Chopin, by Mompou, Schumann, Tchaikovsky, Grieg and Barber.

Around the concertos, Trifonov places other early Chopin – a truly exceptional account of the Variations on Là ci darem la Mano...There’s a glittering set of Mompou variations, Barber’s Nocturne, a Grieg study and a Tchaikovsky miniature, all played with predictable faultless brilliance.
