Praised by the Los Angeles Times for his grace, eloquence and the ‘understated beauty of his tone’, Macedonian pianist Simon Trpceski shot to fame after winning the London International Piano Competition in 2001. A regular concerto soloist with many of the world’s leading orchestras, he also enjoys a busy international career as a chamber musician, and his solo recordings have received recognition as ‘Editor’s Choice’ and ‘Debut Album’ awards from Gramophone.
 
With repertoire rich in nods towards a folk hinterland, Trpceski’s programme for this Wigmore Hall Live album draws strongly on his deep immersion in national traditions of music and dance throughout his childhood. Schubert’s tuneful 16 German Dances pave the way to what is arguably the composer’s most virtuosic sonata, his ‘Wanderer’ Fantasy. Almost symphonic in scale, Trpceski’s emphatically energetic performance here unleashes an emotional outpouring.
 
By way of a transcription of Bach’s Prelude and Fugue in A minor BWV543, in which the rich sonorities of the organ work are handsomely explored in an arrangement for piano, the second half of the programme focuses on Liszt. Here, Trpceski demonstrates his wide palette of tone colours with subtly sculpted phrases to explore the depths of these masterpieces.

                     ***** (Essential - go get it!)

Marius Dawn - Pianist magazine - February/March 2014


 "...Simon Trpceski is a pianist who excites admiration and i eagerly look forward to hearing more from him."

Patrick Rucker - International Record Review - June 2013


                     Gramophone Choice 

 "...a varied, thoughtfully chosen programme, a rewarding musical and pianistic experience one wants to return to, superbly recorded, classily presented and featuring the playing of a master pianist."

Jeremy Nicholas - Gramophone magazine - June 2013


 "...You only have to listen to Schubert’s 16 German Dances D783 to appreciate the breadth of Trpceski’s interpretative terms of reference: there is a strong pulse but also an astonishing range of subtle shades of dynamics and supple shaping of phrases. Simplicity and sophistication go hand in hand in these dances. Trpc?eski has full measure of them; his touch is exquisite, his gauging of the expressive perspective finely tuned.

This was altogether a thoughtfully structured programme, with the 16 German Dances followed by a commanding performance of the Wanderer Fantasy, underpinned by the mix of rhythmic buoyancy and security that seems to come so naturally to Trpc?eski and deploying a remarkably vivifying spectrum of tonal colour. Architecturally Trpc?eski tackles the Fantasy with absolute assurance, and within that framework his sharp characterisation of its different episodes, whether lyrical, solemnly brooding or animated, is of an order that fully justifies the ecstatic audience applause and cheers that salute it."  *****
