Danny Driver

Pianist Danny Driver will be making his Toronto debut on our stage on November 15th.

Born in London in 1977, Driver speaks Hebrew as well as English and is a descendant of Baal Shem Tov.  He has gained an international reputation as an outstanding British pianist in recent years.

He originally started his studies with Natural Science but eventually changed to study music at the Royal College of Music.  Driver was appointed the Professor of Piano at the Royal College of Music starting this past September.  He also performs world-wide with orchestras, in recital, and as a chamber musician.

Recording with Hyperion, Driver has several acclaimed recordings and is known for championing less well-known or neglected composers like York Bowen and Mily Balakirev.  He has recently recorded another CD in Hyperion’s Romantic Piano Concerto Series which should be released soon.
