Notes and Editorial Reviews

Mr. Trifonov's first CD was released on Decca in 2011, featuring a selection of Chopin solo piano works. Daniil Trifonov is emerging as one of the brightest names of the next generation of pianists. During the 2010-1 season he won medals at three prestigious competitions: the Chopin Competition in Warsaw (Bronze Medal), the Rubinstein Competition, in Tel Aviv (first prize), and the Tchaikovsky Competition, in Moscow (Gold Medal). Valery Gergiev personally awarded Trifonov the Grand Prix in Moscow, an additional award given to the best overall competitor in any of that competition's categories.

Highlights of Trifonov's recent seasons include debuts with the London Symphony Orchestra and Mariinsky Concert Hall, Moscow Easter
