DANIIL TRIFONOV

SZYMANOWSKI, DEBUSSY, PROKOFIEV & BRAHMS
Russian pianist Daniil Trifonov gives a spectacular demonstration of the piano’s limits in an evening of music that displays his passion, technique and skill for the instrument.
Programme

KAROL SZYMANOWSKI (1882-1937)
Piano Sonata No. 3  Op. 36 

CLAUDE DEBUSSY (1862-1918) 
Pour le piano 

SERGEI PROKOFIEV (1891-1953) 
Sarcasms Op. 17 

Interval 

JOHANNES BRAHMS (1833-1897)
Piano Sonata No. 3 in F minor Op. 5  

Brahms was just 20 when he penned his passionate, virtuosic Piano Sonata No. 3, but it’s structurally and emotionally ambitious. After a first movement full of his characteristic shifting rhythms comes an Andante evoking a nocturnal love poem, which after a bounding Scherzo makes a darkened reappearance via an extra ‘Rückblick (looking back)’ movement. The finale then pulls together past ideas.
