In The Studio: Simon Trpčeski
Ahead of the release of his Linn debut, 'Makedonissimo', next month, pianist Simon Trpčeski is back in the studio to work on his next recording for Linn Records. His second Linn release, scheduled for 2021, will feature Shostakovich. The programme includes Piano Concertos, performed with the Janáček Philharmonic Orchestra and Cristian Măcelaru, plus Trios performed with Aleksandar Krapovski violin and Alexander Somov cello, who both appear on 'Makedonissimo'.
Simon commented: "I am thrilled that the sad and mysterious corona times are very productive. In the wake of the Makedonissimo album, we are continuing the collaboration with Linn Records and prepare the Shostakovich album starting with the preparation of Trio recording with the Makedonissimo colleagues, both Aleksander's:)) at the Macedonian Cultural Center and the Music Academy in Sofia, Bulgaria."
