Bach Partita No 1 in B flat major BWV 825
Ligeti 18 Études
With amazing titles such as Vertigo, Suspense and The Devil's Staircase, the preludes inhabit a unique sound world. Danny Driver's performance of these pieces at the Lammermuir Festival led to a standing ovation for his rendering of some of the very hardest piano music ever written. Staggering virtuosity! The clarity and poise of Bach's first Partita is the perfect contrast.
