Youth, Divine Treasure

One of the greatest piano talents of our time is the Russian Daniil Trifonov, who has just passed his thirties, and for his presentation in Granada he has chosen works by four great composers, written at an early age, especially in the cases of Prokofiev and Brahms, who had just turned 20. Brahms’s example is remarkable, because his Third Sonata is a monumental work of construction and inventiveness. Prokofiev, on the other hand, tinkered a bit like an enfant terrible with his five pieces of Sarcasm, and the title says it all. Although dated in 1901 to be sent to his publisher, Debussy had written Pour le piano long before, and it already shows a personality that was definitely moving away from the Romantic world. At the age of 35, Szymanowski showed his maturity by means of a Third Sonata with a classical structure and considerable contrapuntal density.
