DANIIL TRIFONOV – The Magics of Music / The Castelfranco Veneto Recital
In these two films Trifonov talks revealingly about his musical concerns but his modesty prevents him from saying anything at all about his extraordinary technique.
The films contain a number of performances shot live on stage with cameras unusually close to the artist which adds consideraby to the power of the images. They also present him in conversations which demonstrate his earnestness, his exceptional modesty and his gloriously high intelligence.
In the portrait film Trifonov plays music by Chopin, Ravel and Trifonov himself: part of his first piano Concerto, filmed at the world premiere performance which took place at the Cleveland Institute, in the United States, in April 2014.
In the performance film he plays music by Chopin, Scriabin, Johann Strauss (arranged Trifonov) and Rachmaninov—a performance of the rarely heard Variations on a Theme of Chopin, in the elegant Teatro Accademico in Castelfranco Veneto, near Venice in Italy.
