The Torch is Passed: Danill Trifonov Plays Chopin

I can’t think of a better way to mark Chopin’s 203rd birthday than with this sampling of the artistry of the 21-year old Russian pianist Danill Trifonov, in action in our Fraser Performance Studio.

Beieve in the hype surrounding Trifonov: I’ve heard a lot of Chopin from a lot of pianists over the years, and Trifonov’s way with the “poet of the piano” is truly extraordinary.   Check out his performance of the entire Op. 25 etudes, as well as some of the “Fairy Tales” by Nikolai Medtner, in the entire studio session with Cathy Fuller by clicking here – or below.
