Today’s blog post: Daniil Trifonov, Chopin Evocations, the making of
Sometimes I need time and a bit of distance to appreciate the meaning of some musical projects I do as part of the Mahler Chamber Orchestra.
For instance, the recording of Chopin piano concertos with Daniil Trifonov and Mikhail Pletnev, which took place nearly a year ago in Dortmund.
One aspect is of course the time delay between the recording itself and the release of the CD. Several months, an eternity in our fast consuming art world, which forces us to slow down, reevaluate, rediscover, and offers us a different perspective on our own music making.
It was also a project of first times. First time playing with Daniil Trifonov, first time with Mikhail Pletnev, and first time playing Chopin’s piano concertos in the revised version by Mikhail Pletnev himself.
But above all, what strikes me most as I listen to the recording, is the genius of Daniil Trifonov, his poetry and ultra sensitive concert performances.Read More Daniil Trifonov, Chopin Evocations, the making of
