Following the Grammy-nominated Deutsche Grammophon recording Rachmaninoff Variations and Trifonov's critically acclaimed subscription debut performing the Piano Concerto No. 4, the young Russian superstar—Gramophone magazine's musican of the year in 2016—returned to perform and record live the composer's gorgeous and popular masterpiece, the Concerto No. 2. It was paired with Bartók's most famous work, which gives each section of the orchestra a turn in the spotlight.
