Danny Driver (piano)

Pianist Danny Driver has garnered overwhelming critical praise – and a Gramophone award nomination – for his previous discs for Hyperion. His authoritative and virtuosic performances of York Bowen and CPE Bach have placed him firmly in the ‘one to watch’ category. For his latest disc, he turns to one of the giants of the Russian piano world.

This disc looks beyond the ubiquitous ‘Islamey’ to some of Balakirev’s most important works – which are curiously underrepresented on disc. The Piano Sonata in B flat minor is a major achievement of the period and one quite unlike any contemporary large-scale piano composition. Its absence from the standard repertoire is unfortunate, as it is fully worthy of such a place. Undoubtedly this marvellous recording will provoke a reappraisal.

“In particular, the piano sonata in B flat minor is a terrific, big-hearted piece, unlike anything else from its period, and its neglect in the concert hall is surely due a reappraisal. Driver adds several other delicious treats...Impressive playing throughout” The Observer, 23rd January 2011

“This is by no means gratuitously embroidered music but, as Driver also shows, music of sometimes tender, plaintive emotion, as in a B minor Nocturne...Bravo to Hyperion for championing this music and to Driver for playing it with such sensitivity, polish and élan.” The Telegraph, 4th February 2011 *****

“It's wonderful to see a talent such as this continuing to address the more obscure pianistic byways, and here Driver has assembled a fabulous array of works from Balakirev's very varied keyboard output...This is a fabulous introduction to the very diverse and unduly neglected works by one of the finest of nineteenth-century pianist composers.” International Record Review, March 2011

“Driver presents [Islamey] in a tonally ravishing and lucid performance of the utmost sensitivity...the disc is unquestionably another feather in the cap of a pianist whose every new release is now eagerly anticipated.” Gramophone Magazine, April 2011

“Hyperion's new release is full of music that mixes Chopinesque grace with Russian-bear grandiosity. Driver is the sort of pianist who can handle both, delivering performances of poise, power and no shortage of passion.” BBC Music Magazine, June 2011 *****

The latter include Vocalise by Rachmaninov, Valse Sentimentale and the last movement, Mélodie, from Souvenir d’un lieu cher by Tchaikovsky, and the famous Flight of the Bumblebee, an orchestral interlude written by Nikolay Rimsky- Korsakov for his opera The Tale of Tsar Saltan.

Felicity Lott (soprano) & Isabelle Moretti (harp)

One of Britain’s most acclaimed and best-loved sopranos, Felicity Lott, collaborates with award-winning harpist, Isabelle Moretti, to create ‘Cantare’ – a celebration of the relationship between the harp and the voice ranging over a very varied and sometimes surprising repertoire. Dame Felicity Lott, a long time friend of Isabelle, brings her experience, charm and charisma to the vocal works chosen by both herself and the harpist. First sung by Judy Garland in the musical film The Wizard of Oz (1939), “Over the Rainbow” has become a universally known tune. Isabelle Moretti calls it her ‘cult song’, and Felicity Lott admits to humming it in the shower. Here, the harp part is an arrangement by the harpist herself. Award-winning artist Isabelle Moretti is one of the most appealing figures in the world of the harp and on today’s musical scene. Her rich and varied discography has been much acclaimed, winning such awards as the Victoire de la Musique, Grand Prix de la Nouvelle Académie du Disque, Prix Charles Cros, Choc du Monde de la Musique, 10 de Répertoire, and fff de Télérama.

“…a disc crammed full of various delights, with the harp singing alone in nearly half of the pieces, and acting as radiant accompanist to Felicity Lott in the remainder. …Debussy's 'La Belle au bois dormant' is a magical revelation. Lott is, of course, an ideal accomplice, whether dreamily sophisticated as here or more innocent, as in Martini's 'Plaisir d'amour'. ...Moretti's musicality shines through.” BBC Music Magazine, January 2010 ****

“...the harp is exhibited as an instrument of many colours, and of virile strength as well as blushful modesty. Wonders are performed as melodies sing forth in clear-voiced solo or a melisma is woven in the air...Felicity Lott's own singing is as delightful as ever, and the varied selection is well made.” Gramophone Magazine, October 2010
