Damir Durmanovic playing at Saint Olave’s.
I had forgotten what a unique musician Damir is. Anyone that can add embellishments to Chopin’s D flat nocturne and convince you is someone to reckon with. As he could even make some slight additions to Liszt’s Mephisto Waltz n.1 that like Horowitz were breathtaking. Improvising between each piece as he linked them together via key relationships into a whole. Daring to start with a twenty minute Sonata by Vorisek a pupil of Hummel and making you wonder why we have not seen it on other programmes before.
