"Technical brilliance, deep musicality and a fearless sense of adventure underpin every one of this artist's performances. His Rachmaninov concerto cycle, presented across the UK in 2015 with the Philharmonia Orchestra, drew standing ovations and critical superlatives. While the summer saw acclaimed returns to the BBC Proms with the LSO, and to the Edinburgh International Festival in recital with Matthias Goerne. Our 2016 Instrumentalist Award goes to Daniil Trifonov."
