He was described by The Times in 2015 as the most astounding pianist of our age.

Now, following his acclaimed album Destination Rachmaninov: Departure, Daniil Trifonov completes the cycle of his Rachmaninov project with this coupling of Rachmaninov’s Piano Concertos Nos. 1 & 3.

The Russian pianist is joined by the Philadelphia Orchestra, under the baton of Yannick Nézet-Séguin.

Daniel Lozakovich draws on his family’s Russian roots for this new exploration of Tchaikovsky’s masterpieces for violin.

The 18-year-old Swedish violinist is joined by the National Philharmonic Orchestra of Russia led by Vladimir Spivakov, under whose baton Lozakovich made his concert debut – at just nine years old.

“The concerto recording sessions at Moscow’s Svetlanov Hall flowed so well,” Daniel Lozakovich said of the album.

“Playing with Maestro Spivakov and the Russian National Philharmonic, I really felt the Russian soul of their sound. My favourite interpretation of  the Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto has always been Maestro Spivakov’s recording.”
