Pianist Daniil Trifonov’s latest album captures the magic of Chopin’s music and traces its influence through the works of five other composers. On this double-disc set, Trifonov performs Chopin’s two piano concertos and a selection of some of his earliest and latest solo works, as well as tributes to Chopin by Grieg, Mompou, Schumann, Tchaikovsky and Barber. The album features world-premiere recordings of new orchestrations of the piano concertos by Trifonov’s fellow pianist-composer Mikhail Pletnev, who conducts the Mahler Chamber Orchestra.
