Danny Driver piano

Messiaen, Kaija Saariaho, Ligeti and Schumann


  • Danny Driver piano

Sound colours and evocative imagery belong to Danny Driver’s imaginative choice of repertoire. He returns to Wigmore Hall to explore the soundworlds of Messiaen and Kaija Saariaho before delving into the kaleidoscopic expressive contrasts of Schumann’s Kreisleriana.
