Daniil Trifonov, winner of the 2011 Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow, has been signed by Deutsche Grammophon. This recording of his Carnegie Hall recital debut, made a month before his 22nd birthday, is the first fruit of the new relationship. Trifonov is a player of formidable technique, and imagination; the way he creates tracery that’s like a glistening whisper in Scriabin’s Second Sonata, highlighting the main material by lightening the background, immediately tells you that. And he characterises Chopin’s 24 Preludes with variety and real individuality. There is young man’s thunder aplenty in Liszt’s Sonata in B minor, the one work here which seems to be limited by a vision that’s more concerned with the moment than the whole. url.ie/57as
