Trifonov’s long-awaited first solo performance in Finland will take place at the Helsinki Music Centre.
Daniil Trifonov is to the piano as Lionel Messi is to football: a virtuoso of exquisite technique, whose talent extends to the field of intelligence. While Messi’s intellect is expressed in a natural eye for the game of football, Trifonov’s is emotional in nature, as if his fingers control the feeling of his audience.
Trifonov’s long-awaited first solo performance in Finland will take place at the Helsinki Music Centre. Despite the presence of other star players, from Tchaikovsky to Robert Schumann and Mozart to Ravel, there’s no doubt that it’s Trifonov who’ll run the show. His soft touch absorbs listeners in a musical drama.
Trifonov, now in his thirties, has exhausted all possible superlatives, and his trophy cabinet is full of awards: a Grammy and Gramophone’s Artist of the Year award sit alongside his other medals and trophies. But unlike Messi, Trifonov’s career is still on the rise.
