In 2011 the Avie label released the second concerto album from Trpčeski, Petrenko and the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra: the completion of Rachmaninov’s Piano Concerti, Nos. 1 and 4 alongside Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini. This disc has been recognized with Classic FM, Gramophone “Editor’s Choice” and Diapason d’Or distinctions.  His latest recordings are, a CD featuring Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerti Nos. 1 and 2 with Vasily Petrenko and the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, was released in autumn 2014 on the Onyx Classics label and Wigmore Hall Live recital Disc, featuring Brahms, Ravel, Poulenc released in early 2016.

In summer 2011 Simon Trpčeski and cellist Nina Kotova performed works by Chopin for a theatrical event based on the life of Frédéric Chopin featuring the renowned actors Jeremy Irons and Sinead Cusack at the Tuscan Sun Festival in Cortona, Italy.
He has a regular duo partnership with cellist Daniel Müller-Schott – recent collaborations have included a North America Tour in April 2014 with performances in Vancouver, Montreal and Washington D.C; Concertgebouw, Wigmore Hall (November 2014) as well as Bilbao (in May 2015) and trio performances with Julia Fischer and Daniel Müller-Schott at the Wigmore Hall (March 2014) and Dresden Philharmonie (July 2014).

With the special support of KulturOp — Macedonia’s leading cultural and arts organization — and the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Macedonia, Mr. Trpčeski works regularly with young musicians in Macedonia in order to cultivate the talent of the country’s next generation of artists.

Born in the Republic of Macedonia in 1979, Simon Trpčeski has won prizes in international piano competitions in the United Kingdom, Italy and the Czech Republic. From 2001 to 2003, he was a member of the BBC New Generation Artists, and in May 2003, he was honored with the Young Artist Award by the Royal Philharmonic Society. In December 2009, the President of Macedonia H.E. Gjorge Ivanov honored him with the Presidential Order of Merit for Macedonia, a decoration given to foreign and domestic dignitaries responsible for the affirmation of Macedonia abroad. Most recently, in September 2011, Mr. Trpčeski became the first ever recipient of the title “National Artist of the Republic of Macedonia”.
