On 18 April Simone Lamsma gave her Brazilian recital debut with pianist Valentina Lisitsa at very short notice, replacing Vadim Repin and Itamar Golan, who were the originally scheduled artists. The recital took place in the prestigious Sala Cecilia Mereiles in Rio de Janeiro, and received an overwhelming response from the audience.

In 2011 Simone will be returning to Brazil to perform in São Paulo with the São Paulo Symphony Orchestra under Yan Pascal Tortelier.
