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.






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.
