Days of Macedonian Culture in London

The concert of piano virtuoso Simon Trpceski with London's Philharmonia Orchestra at the "Royal Festival Hall" will open Thursday the Days of Macedonian Culture in London, held until May 14.

The event is organized within the Cultural Olympiad, in light of the Summer Olympics in the British capital.

Trpceski will perform Piano Concerto No.2 by Franz Liszt, under the baton of Philippe Jordan. The concert is part of his UK tour, including performances in Cheltenham, Bedford and Warwick this week.

"I am glad that my concert with the Philharmonia Orchestra will enrich the image and represent Macedonia at the Cultural Olympiad. Macedonia is a country that has culture and art as its flag-bearer. I hope my performance will deserve an encore and everyone will enjoy the event", said Trpceski at last week's press conference.

Days of Macedonian Culture also include exhibition "Made in Macedonia", including works by 13 contemporary artists, play "Henry VI" produced by the Bitola Theatre, performance of Stevce Stojkovski's folk ensemble, and promotion of edition "130 Volumes Macedonian Literature" in English language.
