Daniil Trifonov - Silver Age is the WFMT: Featured New Release
Daniil Trifonov's latest album for Deutsche Grammophon, recorded with Valery Gergiev and the Mariinsky Orchestra, recalls a time when Russia's composers, poets, artists, dramatists, and star performers were among the most original anywhere in the world. Silver Age illustrates the artistic audacity and brilliance of a turbulent era in the country's history with works by three of its most pioneering composers. The Russian pianist's new album includes Scriabin's Piano Concerto, Prokofiev's Piano Concerto No. 2, Stravinsky's Three Movements from Petrushka, and solo works by Prokofiev and Stravinsky.
