Anything but Standard

»What he does with his hands is technically incredible« – no lesser pianist than Martha Argerich apparently said this about Daniil Trifonov shortly after he won the prestigious Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow in 2011. »What makes Trifonov so special are two features that are rarely found combined in a single pianist: outstanding technique and a brilliant tone« - thus The New Yorker, writing about the Russian pianist. And what he offers the audience at this recital in the Hamburg Laeiszhalle is once again anything but standard: his own personal choice of piano pieces by the leading composers of the 20th century.
