Summary:

Simon Trpčeski’s recording of Rachmaninov’s Piano Concertos Nos. 2 and 3 was one of the most acclaimed and best-selling classical releases of 2010. His frequent collaborations with Vasily Petrenko and the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra are justly celebrated. Together they complete the Rachmaninov canon with this highly-anticipated follow up of Concertos Nos. 1 and 4, and the Paganini Rhapsody.

Rachmaninov Concertos 2 and 3 made the Top 3 of the UK Specialist Classical Chart and won a Diapason d’or de l’année
