Damir Durmanovic at St Mary’s – stars shining brightly in Perivale today
Sounds from the piano that Matthay had shared with Myra Hess and Moura Lympany where every note has an infinite variety of beautiful sounds that can as if by magic turn a box of hammers and strings into a wondrous world of fantasy and sumptuous delight.
Damir has much in common with them too with his natural musicianship that has been nurtured from his youthful studies with Marcel Baudet and Robert Levin at that remarkable school that Menuhin has bequeathed to his adopted country.
Programmes that are constructed with key relationships in mind. Repertoire chosen from a vast range of neglected masterpieces.
A true musician who can improvise and modulate as was the norm in Bach’s day but has now become a rarity.
