First DG album for 21-year-old pianist will be a live Carnegie Hall recital recording, which took place on February 5, 2013, and featured works by Scriabin and Liszt alongside Chopin’s 24 Preludes.
‘The highest musical ideals I strove for from childhood were embodied by Deutsche Grammophon and its association with such names as Vladimir Horowitz and Martha Argerich,’ said Trifonov. ‘To be part of this tradition is for musicians a stage for posterity, and for me the greatest possible honour.’
Daniil Trifonov’s first album for DG will be released later this year.
