The Times
"Trifonov is a true musician, not just an acrobat of piano technique, and his performance was unusual in its strongly lyrical impulse -- gentle passages made their impression as much as stormy ones."
Ft. Worth Star-Telegram, April 6, 2013

"Trifonov, however, presented such a gripping account, filled with poetic intimacy and warm sincerity, that the audience in Saratoga fell entirely under his spell. It was probably the first time I truly regretted that this immensely long piece [Schubert’s B-flat Major Sonata, D. 960] had come to an end; I wanted it to last much longer."
San Francisco Classical Voice,February 18, 2012

"Faustian turmoil, devilish demands, whatever program you want to apply, Trifonov drove Liszt's [B-minor Sonata from 1854] treacherous course with the bravery and skill of a World Rally Champion, bringing us repeatedly to the perilous edge and then feinting at last minute, swinging back on course and charging forward. Even he was caught up in the breathless excitement and, in the pause after the huge climax before the quietly transfixing denouemont, took an audible gasp of air. One audience member overheard at intermission confessed that she did not need ever again to hear that piece, feeling that no other performance could surpass what she had just experienced.
