The clarinet and piano duo of Jean Johnson and Danny Driver perform a concert of music from the late 19th century to the present day: An event in the Bradfield Festival of Music, 2022

British-American Clarinettist Jean Johnson is an international collaborator in chamber music programs and as such has played in some of world’s finest venues notably the Concertgebouw, Wigmore Hall, Carnegie Hall, and the Palais des Beaux-Arts. As part of her varied music life, Ms. Johnson is a member of the critically acclaimed trio ensemble, ”Metamorphoses”and forms a duo with pianist Steven Osborne. She has collaborated with chamber music groups around the world and has been a concerto soloist with leading orchestras throughout the UK, Spain, Netherlands, and America.

Acclaimed British pianist Danny Driver is recognised internationally as an artist of sophistication, insight and musical depth. His studies at Cambridge University and the Royal College of Music inspired his uniquely holistic approach to performance and have enabled him to cultivate an enviably broad repertoire encompassing works from Bach and Handel to Ligeti and Adès. In 2021, Driver released his latest album of Ligeti’s Etudes on the Hyperion label to unanimous high praise, with BBC Music Magazine writing, ‘The Études require even more virtuosity...of a brain-teasing sort, and Danny Driver supplies it all.’ Despite the difficulties of lockdown, Driver has given four live streamed recitals from Wigmore Hall.
