Petar Dimov & Damir Durmanovic – united in performances of poetic sensitivity
When two superb musicians decide to team up to make music together sparks begin to fly even in Acton on a balmy summer Sunday afternoon.
From the first notes of Mozart’s B flat Sonata with its driving energy and perfect sense of balance where four hands played as two. A musical shape where the added ornamentation added an extra colour to the question and answer that passed between their hands.
An Adagio of simple beauty and a molto presto strangely deliberately played with a beguiling non legato touch of great effect .Obviously enjoying their intelligent liberty of ornamentation but occasionally exaggerating in their zeal to inject the music with charm sometimes at the expense of the overall architectural shape.
