Simon Trpceski to perform in Mexico, Colombia and Brazil

World-renowned pianist Simon Trpceski will hold his first-ever solo concert in Mexico City on Thursday.

"It's really beautiful here, Mexican people have similar mentality with Macedonians and hopefully I will have the chance to learn more about their culture," Trpceski had stated.

Speaking to reporters ahead of his performance, the pianist paid tribute to one of Mexico's greatest poets, José Emilio Pacheco, who is this year's recipient of the Golden Wreath awarded by the Struga Poetry Evenings.

From Mexico, Trpceski departs for Medellin, Colombia for another debut solo performance on Saturday.

His tour resumes in Brazil, which includes three performances in the capital Sao Paulo.

Trpceski in early September will perform as a soloist with the Los Angeles Philharmonic.

The Macedonian pianist kicked off his new concert season early this month with performances at music festivals in Montenegro and Norway.

His latest CD with a recording of his recital at Wigmore Hall in London has been proclaimed best release of the week by Classic FM radio in London.
