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
Festival, Teatro La Fenice, and the Brighton Festival. He also gave performances at Paris's Salle Pleyel, Carnegie Hall, Tokyo's Suntory Hall, London's Wigmore Hall, and a Chopin birthday concert in Warsaw conducted by Krysztof Penderecki.
Mr. Trifonov has performed at international music festivals including Rheingau (Germany) Crescendo (Russia), New Names (Russia), Arpeggione (Austria), Musica in Villa (Italy), Dame Myra Hess Series (USA), the International Festival Institute at Round Top (USA), Santo Stefano (Italy), and Festival Pianistico di Trieste (Italy).
Born in Nizhniy Novgorod, Russia, in 1991, Mr. Trifonov began his musical studies at the age of five. He studied at Moscow Gnesin School of Music with Tatiana Zelikman (2000-09).
