The Guardian has cited Daniil Trifonov’s virtuosity, calling it “elegant and purposeful, [with] every trick deployed to summon new colors, rather than as an end itself.” Trifonov and the Kremerata Baltica showcase Chopin’s complete music for piano and orchestra in this concert. From the sheer brio of the Variations on “Là ci darem” from Mozart's Don Giovanni—which inspired Schumann to comment, “Hats off, gentlemen! A genius!”—to the poetry of the Piano Concerto No. 1, Chopin’s mastery has no better advocate than Trifonov.
