Daniel Grimwood
Print on DemandNormally ready for despatch in approximately 4 weeks


Daniel Grimwood shines a light on the music of Adolph von Henselt, one of the most admired Romantic composers and piano virtuosi of the 19th century, whom Schumann called the ‘hero of the pianoforte’, whose works have nevertheless been largely forgotten in the last 100 years. The album presents a rare collection of pieces, recorded in Schwabach in Germany, Henselt’s town of birth.

Pianist Daniel Grimwood is a performer of international renown, combining an exceptional talent, rare versatility and refinement of technique, with an inquisitive and creative personality.
