Gramophone Award nominated pianist Danny Driver is recognized internationally as an artist of sophistication, insight and musical depth. His studies at Cambridge University and the Royal College of Music inspired his uniquely holistic approach to performance and have enabled him to cultivate an enviably broad repertoire encompassing works from Bach and Handel to Ligeti and Adès.

Playing for us for the first time, his program will include Beethoven’s piano masterpiece, the “Hammerklavier”, along with works by Ravel, Deirdre McKay and Betsy Jolas.
