Macedonian Pianist Simon Trpceski Performs with Royal Philharmonic Orchestra in Liverpool


Macedonian classical pianist, Simon Trpceski, the favorite artist of the British audience, had a sold-out concert on Sunday with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra in the neo-classical edifice of St. George, used by the orchestra until the renovation of its original scene is completed, daily Utrinski Vesnik reads.

Despite playing with the oldest symphony orchestra in Great Britain as a piano soloist, performing the brilliant First Piano Concert by Shostakovich and the Overture on Hebrew Themes by Prokofiev, Trpceski also conducted a team of the Orchestra. The program also featured works by Brahms and Elgar.

As a "resident artist", in the last 30 days only, Trpecski performed four times in the city of the Beatles, and last week he had three concerts with a completely different program (recital, chamber evening and concert with an orchestra). The Macedonian piano virtuoso held a master-class seminar at the Royal College for Music. The grand finale was precisely the latest cooperation with the exceptional orchestra which otherwise works with the famous conductor and orchestra chief, Vasily Petrenko, a combination praised by the British media, describing them as a "dream team".


Yesterday’s standing ovations and the encore performance of the concert’s hallmark theme "You’ll never Walk alone" by Rodgers and Hammerstein, arranged by Pande Shahov, were a confirmation of the undoubted star status our pianist enjoys.

"I am glad that the Macedonian Radio Television witnessed another historical event for me, here in Liverpool where my debut as a pianist and conductor took place, at the final concert in the week during which I was a resident artists at the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra’s season. It was really difficult to combine both responsibilities. Your brain needs to work on all sides, and a person should be well prepared and have the music scores in his little finger," Trpceski told the MRT.

I was lucky, he added, to have been able to work with fantastic musicians, who were very loyal and positive during the rehearsals and people willing to cooperate and know very well what they do.

"Conducting a Shostakovich concert does not happen often, the scores are not naive at all, but together with the trumpeter and the entire orchestra, I think we successfully told our story. I was very motivated and inspired. Although I feel I have the talent to conduct, still this wasn’t my idea. The idea came from the orchestra, along with the invitation to hold several concerts and be a resident artist," Trpceski added.

The exceptional experience before the astonished Liverpool audience with its exclusive moves was also supported by Trpceski’s management, IMG Artists, with a pleasant surprise – the new CD was available only at this event, with two concerts of Tchaikovsky played by the "dream team" - the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, the conductor Petrenko and the pianist Trpceski.

Because of the huge interest for Trpceski’s concerts in Liverpool, two other concerts have already been scheduled for the next season of the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, on February 18 and 19, 2015, along with the orchestra chief, Petrenko. In the meantime, Trpceski and Petrenko will perform together at the start of the new season in August, along with several orchestras in Italy, Austria, the Netherlands and Norway.
