Benjamin Grosvenor’s new album ‘Rhapsody in Blue’ receives five stars from BBC Music Magazine


“I can only concur with other critics who hear in his tone and phrasing echoes of a golden age, and that he should count Alfred Cortot and Benno Moiseiwitsch among his idols comes as no surprise: there is the same spaciousness within rhythmic control and the same bell-like sound. For me, his playing of the Godowsky version of Saint-Saens’s Swan is a high point, with its apparently effortless distinction between the many filigree lines and its aristocratic elegance. At the other extreme, Gershwin’s Rhapsody is blue among many other colours. A champagne disc – fizz and finesse”.

Roger Nichols, October 2012
