Daniil Trifonov: BACH - The Art of Life (Encore Edition) LP


Ships on: July 24, 2024

As a follow up to Daniil Trifonov’s newest release BACH: The Art of Life, this exclusive 10 inch vinyl includes a brand new variation by Daniil Trifonov – applying all the formal rigors of Bach’s design in the form of a Canon – giving the original motivic and harmonic invention a uniquely 21st Century sound.

BACH: The Art of Life is dedicated to J.S. Bach. Trifonov explores the scientific, emotional, and spiritual dimensions of Bach's cosmos, his faith, family, and world. Centered around Bach's mystical masterpiece, The Art of the Fugue, Trifonov's project investigates the man behind the myth - a genius of humility and humor, whose loves, losses, and devotion inspired what Trifonov calls "some of humanity's most emotionally rich and fascinatingly sophisticated expressions in music."
