This piano recital given by the 21 year old virtuoso Daniil Trifonov gathers three pieces written during or in a souvenir of a love story. Scriabin dedicated his Sonata Fantasy No. 2 to his first love, Natalya Sekerina. Lizst wrote his unique sonata the Sonata in B minor – while he was sharing his life in Weimar with the Polish-Russian princess Carolyne zu Sayn-Wittgenstein. Eventually, the 24 Preludes by Chopin were composed during his vacation in Mallorca with George Sand and her children. To conclude this original recital recorded at the Verbier Festival in July 2013, the young Russian rising star of the piano performs one of his own compositions, Rachmaniana.
