Alexander Scriabin: Sonata No.2 in G sharp minor, Op.19 (Sonata-fantasy)
Franz Liszt: Sonata in B minor
Fryderyk Chopin: 24 Preludes, Op.28
The hotly anticipated Southbank Centre debut recital of Russian pianist Daniil Trifonov, winner of the 2011 International Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow and third prize-winner in the 2010 International Chopin Competition in Warsaw.
'...he has everything and more. What he does with his hands is technically incredible. It's also his touch - he has tenderness and also the demonic element. I never heard anything like that' (quoted in the Financial Times).
The New York Times commented, 'Mr. Trifonov has scintillating technique and a virtuosic flair. He is also a thoughtful artist ... he can play with soft-spoken delicacy, not what you associate with competition conquerors.'Performers
