Notes and Editorial Reviews



Gramophone Magazine's 2016 Artist of the Year!

Pianist Daniil Trifonov, whose playing the New York Times called “simply electrifying,” plays Franz Liszt’s complete concert etudes on his new two-disc album, Transcendental, released by Deutsche Grammophon. Trifonov recorded his visionary interpretations within the space of five days, a feat in keeping with the tireless energy and superhuman spirit of Liszt himself. In addition to the Transcendental Etudes, the recital includes the Paganini Etudes and five Concert Etudes.

 Exceptional Recording March 6, 2017 By Peter M. (New Canaan, CT) See All My Reviews "I don't feel qualified to comment on the Liszt music itself. However, Trifonov's performance is truly exceptional as is the recording itself. In my humble opinion, a "must have" recording." Report Abuse
