Ulysses Arts releases Bosnia-born British-resident pianist Damir Durmanovic's debut solo release of Schubert's great Piano Sonata in A, D.959, on Friday 19 March. Damir comments:
'Schubert described Mozart as "the Christ of music": written in the last months of Schubert's life, this Sonata is his homage to Mozart, but bursting with Schubert's distinctive playfulness, with mercurial changes of mood, virtuoso hand-crossing, and sudden moments of darkness.' Recording this work as his solo debut release combines Damir's love of both these composers.
You can hear Damir playing on Ulysses Arts' recordings of Franck and Debussy with violinist Dillon Jeffares released in July 2020; we are delighted to be now releasing his first solo recording too.
