When Macedonian pianist Simon Trpčeski performs solo you can be sure of two things: playing of captivating imagination and colour, and an afternoon of music that adds up to infinitely more than just a wonderful noise. From the playfulness of Beethoven’s delightful Variations to the iron and steel of Prokofiev’s wartime Sonata – by way of Tchaikovsky at his most magical – no pianist combines poetry and panache quite like Trpčeski. A flamboyantly colourful recital from a pianist with charisma – and brilliance – to spare.
