'It's an immensely confident set, comparable to Evgeny Kissin's early performances - the most impressive aspect being not his obvious command of technique, but an intellectual and emotional understanding of the music way beyond his tender years.' 4 stars The Independent

'This recital disc shows his ability to twin youthful exuberance with impeccable technique and magisterial musical intelligence...Grosvenor's balance of oratory and ornament, gesture and poetry - evident, too, in Ravel's Gaspard de la nuit - are moving as well as impressive. He's a phenomenon: modest, poised and natural, as well as brimming with talent.' The Observer

'The first thing you notice is the limpid surface of Grosvenor's playing, the warm tonal gleam that he conjures up from the keys. It is a beautiful sound, and beneath it there are seams of passion, discretion and emotional affinity with the music...there is little to quibble with in this recital, which shows intelligence coupled with a command of keyboard colour and musical characterisation that are remarkable.' 4 stars The Telegraph

'Have you ever heard a more aqueous evocation of Ravel's water nymph? Grosvenor's Steinway instrument seems permanently underwater, swimming through the softest of rippling textures...Grosvenor, you can tell, is a Romantic pianist, almost from another age. He doesn't deconstruct, or stand at a distance. He jumps inside the music's soul.' 4 stars The Times
