Maksim Mrvica (pronounced ‘Máravitsa’ with a rolled ‘r’) was proud of Gestures, his disc of contemporary Croatian piano pieces, he was realistic. He expected it to shift a handful of copies and languish on the shelves like so many other experimental CDs. But he was wrong. It became one of the fastest-selling classical recordings ever to be released in Croatia, and ended up winning four Porin (Croatian Grammies) including one for Best Classical Album.
Maksim was even invited to open the Porin award ceremony – an honour not usually granted to a classical artist and caused a sensation with his performance of The Dance of the Baroness.
