Born in Nizhniy Novgorod in 1991, Daniil Trifonov has already established himself, in the relatively short period since he first came to international prominence in 2011, as one of the finest musical talents to have appeared in the last two decades. His reputation for outstanding performances, musical insight and expressive intensity has already surpassed the attention he received when, during the 2010/11 season, he won medals at three of the most prestigious competitions in the music world: the Chopin Competition in Warsaw, the Rubinstein Competition in Tel Aviv (First Prize) and the Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow (First Prize and Grand Prix). Jury members and observers at these competitions included Martha Argerich, Krystian Zimerman, Van Cliburn, Emanuel Ax, Nelson Freire, Yefim Bronfman and Valery Gergiev. Gergiev personally awarded Trifonov the ‘Grand Prix’ in Moscow, the award given to the best overall competitor in any of that competition’s categories.
Recent highlights for Trifonov have included debuts with the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra (tour and subscription concerts in Vienna), London Symphony Orchestra and Mariinsky Orchestra with Gergiev, Israel Philharmonic with Mehta, Russian National Orchestra with Pletnev, as well as collaborations with Vladimir Fedoseyev, Pietari Inkinen, Sir Neville Marriner, Diego Matheuz and Antoni Wit. He also has given performances at the Wigmore Hall (London), Musikverein (Vienna), Salle Pleyel (Paris), Carnegie Hall (New York), Suntory Hall (Tokyo), and venues across North and South America, Europe and Asia. The audience responses and reviews he has received throughout the season have consistently marked him out as one of the outstanding talents of today.
Since 2012, Daniil Trifonov has made his debut with most of the world's leading orchestras, including the Vienna Philharmonic, New York Philharmonic with Gilbert, Chicago Symphony with Dutoit, Boston Symphony with Guerrero, Cleveland Orchestra with Gaffigan, Philharmonia Orchestra with Maazel, Royal Philharmonic with Dutoit, Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France with Znaider, Budapest Festival Orchestra with Takács-Nagy, Orchestra Nazionale di Santa Cecilia with Battistoni, the London Symphony and Mariinsky Orchestra with Gergiev, the Russian National Orchestra with Pletnev and the Warsaw Philharmonic with Wit.
