Daniil Trifonov & Friends, 22 août 2016 11:00, Queen’s Hall, Edinburgh
Chamber music by Rachmaninov
The remarkable young Russian pianist Daniil Trifonov celebrates another side of his exhilarating musical personality – as a sensitive, eloquent chamber musician – in the last of his three performances at Festival 2016.
He is joined in a powerful programme of chamber music by Rachmaninov by an eminent trio of musical colleagues: the commanding Armenian-American pianist Sergei Babayan; world-renowned violinist Gidon Kremer; and hugely respected Lithuanian cellist Giedre Dirvanauskaite, a regular collaborator with Kremer.
Trifonov and Babayan perform Rachmaninov’s Suites Nos 1 and 2 for two pianos – bold, early works of scintillating, fiery pianism that recount vivid stories in music, ripe with the composer’s unforgettable melodies.
Trifonov is joined by Kremer and Dirvanauskaite for Rachmaninov’s Trio élégiaque No 2, a hugely passionate, heartfelt work written as a memorial to Tchaikovsky, and with an enormously virtuosic solo piano part.
