5.0 out of 5 stars The hype is true!, 26 Oct 2013
This review is from: The Carnegie Recital (Audio CD)
An astounding performance of the Liszt sonata is the real gem in this recital. Trifonov has the technique, the temperament and serious musicianship to bring off a performance like this. Everything gels musically, and he plays with such fire and unbelievable crystalline clarity. It's some feat to bring together all musical strands into such a convincing interpretation - witness the coda to the sonata for example: it really adds up musically.

The preludes are played with sparkling individuality. He brings his own touches, it;s fresh and he really has something to say in each of the preludes. The playing at times makes you stop and think: "ah I like the way he does that ...!"

Scriabin 2nd sonata is a fine performance if not quite as memorable as the Liszt.

P.S. Trifonov's fingers are quite something. His rapid passage work is unbelievably clear and this works hugely to his advantage in the Liszt sonata.
