Amazing but true: If Daniil Trifonov hadn’t started composing, he probably wouldn’t have become a pianist either. First there was composing, he likes to confess. The piano came later. So it is not surprising that composition and interpretation are equally important for Trifonov. This once again reveals the special position of the modest world star, for the double talents of composers and instrumental virtuosos are rare these days. In concert with the Bamberg Symphony Orchestra, Trifonov can now be heard in both of his professions. How much he let himself be inspired by the music of his famous ancestor Sergei Rachmaninov, he definitely doesn’t keep his mouth shut in his first piano concerto. As far as virtuosity, storm and urge are concerned, he cannot deny his role models and yet takes his very own Trifonovian path.
