Henselt: Piano Works (Piano Solo)

Daniel Grimwood

Thumbnail 240

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.

Titanic variations, lilting waltzes, thundering impromptus and reflective nocturnes send the senses reeling in a blizzard of dazzling pianism.

Stephen Pritchard, The Observer

The music is outstandingly well made and very tempting to play. Grimwood makes it sound much a whole lot easier than it could possibly be… One of the few musical gifts of a wretched 2016 is the chance to discover Henselt.
