“The young conqueror of the keyboard” (New York Times) Daniil Trifonov releases 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.

 Interesting Disc November 11, 2017 By Steven G. (Minneapolis, MN) See All My Reviews "I am very much a fan of the young Trifonov. And this disc contains lots of wonderful music and wonderful playing, mostly the solo pieces some of which are not too familiar. I am less persuaded by the new arrangements of the Concertos, and the tempos are just too slow in many places to sustain the flow of the music, though the slow movements are very lovingly played."

 Peaceful energy November 8, 2017 By Kathleen Sagmiller S. (Poulsbo, WA) See All My Reviews "Trifonov expresses Chopin with a peaceful energy. Quality of disc is clear. A pleasant choice to have in my collection sophisticated sound." Report Abuse
