After scoring both an ECHO Klassik Award and a Grammy nomination for Trifonov: The Carnegie Hall Recital, his first recording as an exclusive Deutsche Grammophon artist, the Russian pianist now looks forward to the August 28 release of his second, Rachmaninoff Variations, which he recorded with the Philadelphia Orchestra and Yannick Nézet-Séguin in March. The album features Rachmaninoff’s Variations on a Theme of Corelli, Variations on a Theme of Chopin, and Trifonov’s own composition, Rachmaniana. When he played Rachmaninoff with the Chicago Symphony this spring, the Chicago Tribune realized: 

“From the commanding thunder of his entry, and the idiomatic fluidity with which he and the orchestra conversed throughout the concerto, you knew something special was going on. Coruscating technique Trifonov has in abundance, but there is also an acute musical sensitivity that makes every note speak directly to the listener. His tone was always bright, full, forward and beautiful; he seemed incapable of producing an ugly sound, even when roaring up and down the keyboard at full speed.”
