Schubert – Fantasy in C major (D. 934)

Chloë Hanslip and Danny Driver are in demand worldwide for the technical bravura, poetic reflection and unfailing musicianship of their partnership. Their Castle Howard recital centres on the magical warmth and effervescence of Beethoven’s Spring Sonata, along with the companion piece evoking summer by Jörg Widmann, before culminating in the dazzling inventiveness and ‘heavenly length’ of the great four movement fantasy for violin and piano that Schubert completed in his last months.

‘Hanslip’s passion and technical bravura are palpable and exciting. Fiery glissandi, tremulous multi-stopping:  the fireworks never stop’ – The Times

‘Chloë Hanslip plays with the most enviably sweet and subtly variegated tone throughout and she forms an outstandingly compelling partnership with Danny Driver, whose irreproachably eager and stylish pianism is a joy to encounter’ – Gramophone
