Concert Hour: Daniil Trifonov in Schwetzingen (Pt. 2 of 2)

Daniil Trifonov is among the brightest stars in a new generation of piano soloists. This week's show draws from part two of his electrifying performance at the Schwetzingen Festival.

This week, we return with more from a gifted pianist who seems shy and retiring in person but whose performance style has been described as pure emotionality. Daniil Trifonov gave a solo recital at the most recent Schwetzingen Festival, including works in our broadcast by Schumann, Chopin and the man of the hour himself.

Trifonov also offers us a glimpse into how he prepares pieces, saying, "The central point of attention for any performer should be concentrating on the atmosphere and emotional state of a work. And with any composition, from a composer's point of view, it is always a certain state in the mind, which requires expression later. And detecting this state is a very important part."

At age 23, the pianist has already charted a startling career trajectory - with more peaks sure to come in the years ahead.
