TRPCESKI TO PERFORM IN THE USA
Macedonian piano virtuoso Simon Trpceski is scheduled to perform in Los Angeles, USA on March 28, 29, 30 as soloist at the concerts of the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra.
Under the baton of world-renowned conductor and the next musical director of this orchestra, Gustavo Dudamel, Trpceski will play the First Concerto for Piano and Orchestra by Prokofiev.
Tickets for all three concerts in the prestigious hall “Walt Disney” have been sold out.
Moreover, Canadian daily “Toronto Star” published these days a review by renowned critic John Terauds regarding Trpceski’s concert in the city, in which he says:“The Macedonian artist’s program was all 20th century, also based heavily on the creations of composers who were star pianists: Sergey Rachmaninoff and Prokofiev, as well as Claude Debussy.
Trpceski may have been wearing a plain, black suit and sitting at the Jane Mallett’s old Steinway that can no longer stay in tune through an entire program. But the music he produced during the second half of his recital was pure gold.
There were five sparkling, short pieces by Rachmaninov followed by an electrifying interpretation of Prokofiev’s Piano Sonata No. 7, which was written during the height of World War II. The pianist shaped the ugly piles of notes into towering edifices of rhythm and counterpoint, while making the reflective middle movement sound almost romantic.
Here was a young artist not only possessed with phenomenal technique, but with an iron will that could bend these steely, spiky shapes into awe-inspiring sonic sculptures.
As a bonus for someone who missed his Children’s Corner by Debussy earlier in the evening, all three encores were by the French composer”.
MD: Well done! His popularity keeps rising internationally a great example of a succesfull Macedonian, putting Macedonia on the map around the world!
