Standing ovations for ‘Makedonissimo’ at the Royal Castle in Warsaw

‘Makedonissimo’ project – transcriptions of Macedonian traditional music by Pande Shahov in collaboration with internationally prominent pianist Simon Trpceski – was promoted late Sunday at the Great Assembly Hall of the Royal Castle in Warsaw in honor of the 25thanniversary of the Macedonian-Polish diplomatic ties.

The concert, awarded with standing ovations, is also part of the program for celebrating 100 years since Poland regained its independence.

The event was organized by Macedonia’s Embassy in Warsaw in cooperation with the Royal Castle.

After the concert, Gorica Atanasova Gjorevska, chargé d’affaires of Macedonia’s Embassy, delivered a speech referring to the development of the excellent Polish-Macedonian relations. She extended gratitude for Poland’s support of Macedonia aspirations to join the European Union and NATO.

Anna Sochanska, Director of the European Policy Department at the Polish Ministry of Foreign Affairs, also spoke about the 25-year development of the relations between Poland and Macedonia and thanked Gjorevska for her successful work in Warsaw.

The ‘‘Makedonissimo’ tour in Poland also includes two concerts in Szczecin, Gdansk and Katowice.
