  • Simon Trpčeski piano

Simon Trpčeski has established himself as one of the most remarkable musicians to have emerged in recent years, performing with many of the world’s greatest orchestras and captivating audiences worldwide. He performs a stunning programme, recorded live at Wigmore Hall, opening with Brahms’s melancholic 3 Intermezzi, ‘the cradle songs of my sufferings’ as the composer once called them, a charming and varied selection showcasing Trpčeski’s sensitivity and delicate expression.

Ravel’s eclectic Valses nobles et sentimentales, a dissonant and passionate chain of lilting dances, lie at the heart of this album. The performance concludes with the thrilling Toccata from Poulenc’s Trois pièces, a brilliant demonstration of Trpčeski’s colourful and virtuosic playing.
