Damir Durmanovic in Cyprus
Damir is a great pianist, but also an exceptional musician. He demonstrated excellent professionalism and commendable decisiveness in his collaboration with Guido. Naturally, Guido garnered more attention during the publicity phase owing to his recent win at Kreisler, but by the end of the concert, Damir captured equal attention. Notably, both artists played the entire recital by heart (a rarity for pianists in chamber music), and the chemistry between the two was exceptional, it was hard to believe they only had one day to rehearse. Damir’s virtuosity shined through at all times, without sacrificing the collaborative aspect of the performance, and in his solo he received a storm of applause from the audience. He is indeed a special pianist, I dare to say one of the best you’ve suggested, and we would love to host him again in the future, either in solo recital or in chamber music.
