Described by one critic as a ‘dream team’, Chloë Hanslip and Danny Driver have garnered plaudits for their superlative performances, with Hanslip’s eloquence and agility complemented by Driver’s irrepressible enthusiasm and stylish pianism.

In an age where dazzling violinists are increasingly the norm, Chloë Hanslip has left critics and audiences agog with her spontaneity, flawless technique and sheer elegance of playing. A child prodigy, Hanslip made her BBC Proms debut in 2002 and recorded her debut album for Warner Classics at just 13. Over the past decade she has made the transition to violin superstardom through a series of highly-acclaimed recordings and performances with conductors such as Sir Neville Marriner, Sir Andrew Davis, Mariss Jansons, Paavo Järvi, Charles Dutoit, Michail Jurowski and Jeffrey Tate.

For this tour, she is partnered by Danny Driver, a master recitalist regarded as one of Britain’s most versatile pianists. Winner of the BBC Radio 2 Young Musician Competition in 2001, his career has taken him to venues including the Royal Albert Hall and the Southbank Centre. He's played with the RTÉ Concert Orchestra and made a Proms appearance with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. His 2014 Handel Suites recording on Hyperion was described by Gramophone magazine as “instantly revealing Driver’s nimble finger work...with a sparkling clarity”.
