. . . Daniil Trifonov's trademarks include an extraordinary, inspired intensity mingled with a veritable flood of insight and imagination . . . The Fenice concert presents fine playing throughout, from the charm of the Rondo to the melodic outpourings and high drama of the Sonata . . . [in the Carnegie recital] Trifonov's levels of energy and inspiration would probably be enough to fuel at least two usual pianists. His sensitivity to atmosphere, voicing and fleeting textures allows Scriabin's Sonata No. 2 to burst into colourful and fantastical flame; the Liszt B minor Sonata progresses like a great novel unfurling, with an unerring pace to the drama; and the Chopin Preludes are filled with limitless magical detail. One could pick out the marvellously long lines in the E minor or the A flat major preludes; the pointillist fingerwork in the D major and C sharp minor; his rapt, mysterious pedal effects, an artform in itself. Every piece has a defined soundworld; nothing is repetitive; each feels lit from within, as if improvised on the spot. This is a treat and a half.
