Petar Dimov at St Mary’s Perivale
Timeless beauty and aristocratic musicianship
A beautiful programme that showed immediately that we were to be in the sensitive hands of a true musician. A choice of pieces by Rameau full of character and rhythmic drive but also of tenderness and colour as each picture was painted by an artist with a clear visionary view of these miniature masterpieces. A sense of fluidity and freedom that brought these miniature tone poems vividly to life. There was a fluidity to Les Tendres Plaintes that was played with great expression and whispered beauty immediately transformed into the atmospheric sound world of Arvo Part.
