Grammy Award-winning Russian pianist Daniil Trifonov—winner of Gramophone’s 2016 Artist of the Year award—has made a spectacular ascent in the classical music world as a solo artist, champion of the concerto repertoire, chamber and vocal collaborator, and composer. Combining consummate technique with rare sensitivity and depth, his performances are a perpetual source of awe. “He has everything and more … tenderness and also the demonic element. I never heard anything like that,” marveled pianist Martha Argerich after hearing his winning performance in the International Tchaikovsky Competition Finals in Moscow.
