Daniil Trifonov sets out on an extraordinary journey through the piano literature of the 20th century: performing one seminal work from each decade, he reveals its breathtaking stylistic diversity and rapid development—from Berg’s post-Romantic Opus 1 to Messiaen’s kaleidoscopic interplay of colors and Stockhausen’s avant-garde rigidity, to the minimalist rhythms of John Adams.
