HANDEL: The Eight Great Suites – Danny Driver, piano – Hyperion (2 CDs)
Outstanding versions of these remarkable works, going to the top of the list.
C.P.E. BACH: Keyboard Sonatas, Vol. II = Sonata in F-sharp Minor; Sonata in E Major; Sonata in C Minor; Sonata in A Major; Fantasie in F-sharp Minor; Rondo in D Minor – Danny Driver, piano – Hyperion
Having shed the “learned” affections of his father, C.P.E. Bach cultivated a “sensitive” and dramatic style that pianist Driver finds completely sympathetic to his own virtuoso ambitions.

Benjamin Dale (1885-1943) and York Bowen (1884-1961) are back firmly in the repertoire and on disc.
