Damir Durmanovic reveals the true soul of the Slavic people at Pushkin House
Damir Duramovic at Pushkin House with a refined performance of 19th century Slavic piano music .
Performances of aristocratic style with a refined kaleidoscopic palette of sounds. Culminating in a complete performance of Rachmaninov Preludes op 23 where the volcanic eruptions of the B flat and C minor preludes were followed by the rhythmic drive of the fifth in performances of breathtaking depth and drive.
It was in the study by Scriabin op 2 offered as encore that the true Slavic soul was revealed with playing of great weight and sentiment. Not a trace of the sickly sentimentality that we hear from lesser mortals who do not understand the real poetic soul of a people who were free to express their feelings of a true heart that beats always in the Slavic soul.
