With a startling demonstration of precocity, ferocity and velocity, 26-year-old Russian pianist Daniil Trifonov made his Baltimore recital debut Sunday evening for the Shriver Hall Concert Series. At the very least, he left no doubt about his formidable technique, which sounded as pristine at the end of an unusually long, demanding program as at the start. It’s a rare and disarming thing to hear such unflappable command at the keyboard.

At top speed — and Trifonov did a lot of wonderful speeding — he retained clarity of articulation. At top volume, he somehow managed to avoid brittle banging.

But for all of the razzle-dazzle, which reached a peak in a sensational account of Stravinsky’s Three Movements from “Petrouchka,” what proved even more impressive was Trifonov’s poetic instincts. For the most part, he never stinted on subtlety, making room for fine gradations in dynamics and warm phrase-molding.
