Daniil Trifonov at Verbier July 20,2019, live video.

Whatever your reaction , quite an achievement not to be missed, IMHO. My reaction was very positive. All played attaca with scores.

▪ Alban Berg, Piano Sonata, Op. 1
▪ Sergei Prokofiev, Sarcasms, Op.17
▪ Béla Bartók, Out of Doors, Sz.81
▪ Aaron Copland, Piano Variations
▪ Olivier Messiaen, Vingt Regards sur l'Enfant-Jésus
15. The kiss of the Infant Jesus

PAUSE

▪ György Ligeti, Musica ricercata
I. Sostenuto - Misurato - Prestissimo
II. Mesto, rigido e cerimoniale
III. Allegro con spirito
IV. Tempo di valse (poco vivace - « à l'orgue de Barbarie »)
▪ Karlheinz Stockhausen, Klavierstücke
IX. Klavierstück
▪ John Adams, China Gates
▪ John Corigliano, Fantasia on an Ostinato for Solo Piano

Encore:

▪ John Cage, 4′33″

( He played the Cage from memory, even after such a demanding prior program, but did use a wrist watch, Swiss I assume. )

And , Bravo to the page turner !

I'll look at this over the weekend.

Intriguing program, don't think I'll hum along with the encore though.

Thanks for posting.

Owing to one of your earlier posts, I got a copy of the Ralph van Raat box on Naxos. It just arrived.

I enjoyed most of this.

Trifonov is intense throughout.

He brings the right 'TUDE especially for Prokofiev and Ligeti.

No coughing or murmuring during encore - I was surprised!

Thanks again for posting this.

Perhaps audience was dazzled by his technique in the Cage ? Glad you enjoyed the recital.
