Simon Trpčeski - Tales from Russia - Prokofiev / Mussorgsky / Rimsky-Korsakov

Simon Trpčeski / ONYX Classics  

Prokofiev / Mussorgsky / Rimsky-Korsakov

Welcome to my new CD “Tales from Russia”, released by ONYX Classics, with the inspiring music by Prokofiev, Mussorgsky and Rimsky-Korsakov, rarely heard on piano.

Simon Trpčeski presents a fascinating programme of Russian classics, two of which are heard in unfamiliar guises as works for solo piano – Mussorgsky’ Night on a Bare Mountain, in the arrangement by Rimsky, and then the latter’s Sheherazade. The programme starts with Prokofiev’s delightful ‘Tales of the Old Gramdmother’. Trpčeski’s new album is a pianistic tour de force and will delight pianophiles!
