In this fascinating and intriguing recital, Danny Drives explores Ligeti’s Études, placing them alongside an intriguing selection of other miniatures for piano. Especially exciting is the opportunity to hear music by Joshua Uzoigwe, one of Nigeria’s most distinguished composers, as well as the UK premieres of piano miniatures of Martin Suckling and Thomas Adès.

‘The challenge is “putting the emotional and evocative power of these pieces centre stage despite their intransigent virtuosity”. He manages to do that better than any of the other complete surveys of these pieces I’ve heard’ - The Guardian on Danny Driver’s recording of Ligeti’s Études
