"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.

Henselt: Piano Works
"Titanic variations, lilting waltzes, thundering impromptus and reflective nocturnes send the senses reeling in a blizzard of dazzling pianism"
Stephen Pritchard, The Observer
"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."
Norman Lebrecht, Musical Toronto
"Grimwood … applies his beautifully coloured and voiced playing to these unexpected gems."
Stephen Pettitt, The Sunday Times
