My album of the week on sinfinimusic.com is Daniil Trifonov’s new Rachmaninov release.
Read the review here. Watch exclusive video below, or here.
I’m not allowed to watch this video, because I live in the wrong place.
Not in the US, we won’t be watching.
I just did: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xy_Swd_e60Q
Thanks. I can watch the link you provided. I wonder why Norman’s link is geographically restricted.
“Most fascinating pianist under 40”??? Certainly he’s talented, but let’s not over-sell him. I suffered through his Tchaikovsky concerto at Carnegie Hall a few years ago – and there was nothing fascinating about his wishy-washy performance: He began with “pianissimo” chords at the opening, and then it went downhill from there.
Norman has a tendency to exaggerate, it’s true, but this Trifonov is a real musician and not merely a product of hype. If you heard him only in 2011 you should listen again and closely. He can project over an orchestra by now and has matured musically, as real musicians in their early twenties tend to do.
The young man thought there was not enough Rachmaninoff around and thus added some of his own.
I’m crushed that we aren’t allowed to view the video here in the Colonies.
“We don’t like the colonies getting too sophisticated.”
This horrible Rachmaninoff imitation doesnt speak to his favor.
An interstellargalactic talent with a superhuman, stupendous-ous-ous technique and interpretative powers greater than the summation of all major piano competition winners globally of the last decade.
