– Gramophone Magazine

“Beautifully and stylishly played by Chloë Hanslip. There is wit, charm and romantic flair aplenty”
– The Telegraph

Romanticism lies at the heart of this Music Network tour with British uber violinist Chloë Hanslip, an exceptional artist whose sensitivity and lyricism are matched by her pyrotechnical brilliance. Partnered by Danny Driver, one of the most exciting British pianists working today and described by one critic as a  ‘dream team’, the duo have garnered plaudits for their superlative performances of unfamiliar gems from the Romantic repertoire, 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.

Her tour partner Danny Driver, is 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”.

The programme for this tour includes works by Beethoven, Strauss, Prokofiev and the world premiere of a Music Network commission by Deirdre McKay entitled a quarter million miles from the moon. Other recent Music Network commissions include works by Marian Ingoldsby (Never give all the heart) and Brian Irvine (A Most Peculiar Wintry Thing).

Music Network’s mission is to make live music available and accessible to as many people as possible and the Spring 2016 season provides an opportunity to see some of the world’s foremost musicians throughout the country at affordable prices. Music Network tours are funded by the Arts Council and are presented in association with RTÉ lyric fm.
