Notes & Reviews:

The Telegraph, November 2012
Danny Driver is intimately in touch with the fluctuations of the musical language....His feel for the harmonic explorations in the slow movement [of the E major Sonata] and the rhythmic mischievousness of the finale likewise echoes the music's spirit...Driver plays with an imagination and subtlety fully equal to Bach's own.

International Piano
Driver's playing is always beautifully measured and marked by an exquisitely deft precision.

English pianist Danny Driver presents a second volume of CPE Bach's startlingly original and inventive keyboard sonatas. This release spans the composer's career, taking the listener from the highly expressive manner of his early works to his mastery of the Classical style - in which he still retains the distinctive characteristics, the fantastical changes of mood and tempo which both astounded and perplexed his contemporaries. Driver proves a peerless guide to this fascinating music, performing with elegance and vigor.
