Daniel Grimwood

Daniel is a pianist with a keen interest in all keyboard instruments, both modern and old. He has performed and recorded using historic instruments, including Chopin on Pleyel's instrument sold to Chopin himself, and Liszt on an 1851 Erard. He enjoys both a solo and a chamber music career, and his training as a composer goes some way to explaining his full interests from virginal music to new music; coaxing particular qualities from an old instrument and performing fireworks on a piano in the way that only a modern instrument can support. Daniel performs widely in the UK at Wigmore Hall, the Purcell Room, Bridgewater Hall, and Symphony Hall in Birmingham as well as the Gnessin Hall in Moscow, Carnegie Hall in New York and cities and venues right across Europe.
