György Ligeti’s brilliantly original Piano Concerto encompasses influences as diverse as the music of the Pygmy peoples of Central Africa and the folk music of his native Hungary, a thrilling vehicle for Danny Driver’s virtuosity. Schoenberg’s chamber-sized challenge to the symphonic world of Mahler and Strauss is one of the earliest 20th century classics, still miraculously fresh.

Driver’s recording of Ligeti’s virtuosity-testing Études is full of insight and exuberance.
