Review: Boston Symphony Orchestra, Daniil Trifonov terrific at Tanglewood

Daniil Trifonov
MassLive

By Ken Ross

I've heard Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 21 many times, but I have never heard a pianist perform this elegant, understated piece with such passion and precision. Listening to Trifonov, he made Mozart's music sound like his own composition, as if Trifonov had written each note and made it his own. At one point during the slower, second movement, I had goose bumps and my scalp tingled as I listened to Trifonov gently coax every single note of out the piano.

Not surprisingly, Trifonov received a rousing standing ovation at the end of the piece, which was also the last work on the program. Normally, most soloists perform in the first half of the program. And sadly, many people sometimes leave at intermission. But the Shed was packed Friday night when Trifonov came back out moments later to play an encore.

I was always impressed by Trifonov in the past. Now, I'm absolutely in awe of this poised, mature artist who just gets better and better each year.
