    Default Danny Driver

    In the New Year Pianist Danny Driver is performing with our local orchestra (Sinfonia of Leeds). Anyone come across him and is he any good?

    I have a few of his recordings and consider him an excellent pianist well worth exploring.

    Go with open ears and decide how good he is for yourself - many artists are better live than recorded.
    I have heard a few things he has recorded and they sound fine if not necessarily groundbreaking to my ear, but a concert with the ambience, atmosphere etc will probably be very enjoyable.
    I'd say go for it!

    I misread that as Danny Dyer.
