Notes and Editorial Reviews

Ligeti's vertiginous studies are breathtaking: extraordinary explorations of the modern piano which test the instrument (and its player) to the limit.

REVIEWS:

 

These works are here to stay, in the distinguished line of études stretching back via Debussy to Chopin. They require even more virtuosity, sometimes of a brain-teasing sort, and Danny Driver supplies it all, beginning with rock-solid attack in the polyrhythms of ‘Désordre’.

 

– BBC Music Magazine

 

Driver’s Ligeti Études complement rather than compete with Aimard and Ullén, and that’s high praise.
