THE Telegraph

Anyone with a passion for piano-playing at its most spellbinding should hear Trpcˇeski whenever they can.

Brahms Variations on a Theme by Robert Schumann Op. 9
Liszt Soirées de Vienne Nos 5, 7, 6
Prokofiev Old Grandmother’s Tales, Op. 31
Mussorgsky (arr. Rimsky Korsakov) Night on a Bare Mountain (arr for piano by Konstantin Chernov)
Prokofiev Sonata No. 7, Op. 83

The Macedonian pianist Simon Trpčeski has established himself as one of the most remarkable musicians to have emerged in recent years, praised not only for his powerful virtuosity and deeply expressive approach, but also for his charismatic stage presence. A frequent soloist with the world’s leading orchestras, we are delighted to welcome him back to the NCH, following his concerto performance with Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra in 2018.

This eagerly anticipated solo recital allows Irish audiences to experience piano playing at its finest. Works by Brahms, Liszt and Mussorgsky will showcase Trpčeski’s talent for music of the romantic era - he is quoted as saying “I am a romantic person, and, being a Slav, Romantic music is close to my heart”. Prokofiev’s Sonata No. 7 on the other hand will give full reign to his formidable technique and bring us to a very different world, as he plays the second of the composer’s ‘war sonatas’. A work of raw power and emotion it was first performed by the great Sviatoslav Richter in Moscow in 1943 at the height of the Second World War. ‘With this work’ Richter said, ‘we are brutally plunged into the anxiously threatening atmosphere of a world that has lost its balance. Chaos and uncertainty reign....but that does not mean what we lived by before ceases to exist. We continue to feel and love... we sweep everything before us, borne along by the will for victory. In the tremendous struggle we find an irresistible life-force’
