A MAN FOR ALL SEASONS,
This review is from: This & That - Benjamin Grosvenor (Audio CD)
I have both discs by Mr Grosvenor and I must admit the Decca production is a confirmation of his talents. This disc is a massive affirmation of the talent that this genial unaffected young man has. I played the disc whilst starting a new painting, so I concentrated fully on the sound whilst my hands were occupied. As usual I heard every note. I heard the Albeniz as if minted new and really felt the Spanishness of this music. Loved the Kapustin, the Grainger / Gershwin was delicious. I wonder who put this great selection togehter - I felt it was more inspired than the Decca choices - sorry Benjamin if they were all yours - this is not meant to diminish the more recent disc. Well I am putting space aside, a whole section, and look forward to filling it with more great recordings. By the way thank you for the Chopin, minted new and the wonderfull Scarlatti.
Benjamin Grosvenor plays Chopin, Liszt & Ravel
