Notes & Reviews:

This disc featuring piano concertos by Tchaikovsky marks the Onyx Classics début of Macedonian pianist Simon Trpceski. In both his concert appearances and his recordings, Trpceski has received enthusiastic responses from critics and the public alike. His solo début on EMI received both the Editor's Choice and Debut Album awards from Gramophone magazine. Also making their first recordings for Onyx are the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra and conductor Vasily Petrenko, who will embark on an Elgar cycle for the label starting in early 2015.

BBC Music Magazine, September 2014
[In No. 2] Trpceski begins like a racehorse out of the starting gate...Still, overall he sounds less impetuous and more poised than Denis Matsuev in his recent recording...Petrenko is always of a mind with his soloist, and shapes some powerful long crescendos, but lets the orchestra veer dangerously close to bombast.

The Guardian, 18th September 2014
Trpceski's light, silvery touch lightens up so much of a work which, as Matsuev revealed, can become bombastic...Their account of the First Concerto is very fine without sweeping all before it; it's the Second that should have been the highpoint, and there is not enough of it.

Sunday Times, 5th October 2014
Trpceski's take on the B flat minor dazzles.

MusicWeb International
They are best of all in the slow movement, which is delicately phrased and delicately played, with some beautiful piano turns and some gorgeously sensitive orchestral playing too.

Pianist Magazine, December 2014
Simon Trpceski and Vasily Petrenko have recorded some hard-hitting Rachmaninov concertos, and they employ the same iron fist approach in this new Tchaikovsky release.
