Danny Driver (piano)

Danny Driver first attracted attention in the United Kingdom by winning both the Royal Over-Seas League Competition Keyboard Award and the BBC Radio 2 Young Musician of the Year Competition in 2001, also making his debut at Wigmore Hall during the same year. He subsequently went on to establish himself in Britain with acclaimed recitals at the South Bank Centre and Wigmore Hall in London, Bridgewater Hall in Manchester, and Symphony Hall in Birmingham, also appearing at numerous concert series and festivals throughout the United Kingdom and elsewhere.

Danny Driver has enjoyed collaborations with orchestras such as the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, BBC Concert Orchestra, the Tel-Aviv Soloists, the American Symphony Orchestra and the New Professionals. Notable performances include the USA premiere of York Bowen’s third Piano Concerto with the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra. He enjoys a broad and varied solo and chamber repertoire from the Baroque through to the present day, performing neglected works by composers such as Medtner, d’Albert, Reger, Clara Schumann, York Bowen and Richard Strauss, alongside mainstream works and new music.
