trifonov plays chamber music

Live at the Verbier Festival

Daniil Trifonov, the great Russian virtuoso, is perhaps best known for his bewildering prowess as a solo pianist. Yet deep in his heart lies a passionate love for chamber music, sparked by unique collaborations with close friends during his summers at the Verbier Festival. This release features two iconic Trios from independent realms of the repertoire. First, Trifonov is joined by violinist Ilya Gringolts and cellist Truls Mørk for an emblazoned reading of Beethoven’s ‘Ghost’ Trio. This offering is beautifully paired with the G Minor Piano Trio of Bedřich Smetana, which features radiant performances from fellow-superstars Leonidas Kavakos and Gautier Capuçon.
