ChloŽ Hanslip and Danny Driver

and DANNY DRIVER, piano
St. John's Kirk, Perth

Already known to Perth audiences and a prodigiously gifted young soloist, Chloë returns for a recital with concert pianist Danny Driver in ‘an outstandingly compelling partnership’ [Gramophone].

At the age of 27, Chloë Hanslip has already established herself as an artist of distinction on the international stage. Her recent recordings for Naxos have received outstanding reviews and include John Adams Violin Concerto and Romantic Concertos by Benjamin Godard. Her two earlier CDs with the London Symphony Orchestra for Warner Classics, won her, respectively, the German 'Echo Klassik Award for Best Newcomer' (2002), and 'Young British Classical Performer' at the Classical BRITS (2003). Her impressive recording catalogue also includes a Bazzini recital disc and Concertos by Hubay. She is now recording with Hyperion having released Vieuxtemps Concertos, Glazunov & Schoek concertos and a double disc recital album of the complete works for violin and piano by York Bowen.

Concerto soloist, recitalist, and chamber musician, Danny Driver is known internationally for the exceptional quality of his performances and recordings, the imagination and breadth of his repertoire, and for the individuality of his interpretations of core repertoire works and neglected masterpieces. Critics have praised his ‘bold, exuberant and precise’ performances [The Guardian], ‘impeccable technique and musicianship’ [Gramophone], and ‘poise, power, and passion’ [BBC Music Magazine].
