“His touch was so light that he almost let the piano play itself.” The Independent
“He has all the virtuoso velocity and firepower, and then some” BBC Music Magazine
“Stimulating and revelatory in equal measure” The Telegraph.

Described by Felix Aprahamian as “the finest all-round musician I have ever known”, Grimwood is more than just a pianist. His interest in historic keyboards has lead him to perform on pianos of all ages, harpsichords, virginals and organs. As a musical polymath he has written for various publications and can occasionally be found at his desk composing or performing on the viola!
