Daniil Trifonov hurts his leg at footballmain
Putin’s World Cup, where he played a promo role, has left the star pianist with a problem.
He was supposed to play two Rachmaninov concertos, 1 and 2, in the same July concert at Baden-Baden.
But, says the festival, because ‘he has just recovered from a leg injury (he) would prefer not to perform both piano concertos by Sergei Rachmaninoff on a single evening.’
Trifonov has substituted the Scriabin concerto for the 2nd Rachmaninov, involving less leg work, apparently.
