A voyage of discovery of sumptuous beauty
Petar Dimov playing in this new venue today two masterworks of the keyboard literature.
Played with unusual intelligence and musical integrity that brought refreshing new life to a well worn friend like the Italian Concerto.
It was interesting to see a gleaming new grand piano mounted on a stage like plinth in this Methodist Church in the centre of Acton in west London. Looking at the name of the piano I was surprised to see a name unknown to me……I have known many makes of piano even including a Barenboim but the name Pinkham was new to me. The very informed church master of music ,Jane Schopf, suggested I look on google for information about this piano made in Cornwall – something I was glad to do as you will see below. But it is Petar Dimov’s playing that was so interesting.
