Join renowned pianist, Daniel Grimwood, in St James' Church, Piccadilly, for an evening of stunning classical piano repertoire. Performing a pair of works by two of the Mendelssohn siblings, Fanny and Felix, plus Beethoven's iconic and ever attractive Moonlight Sonata. 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! His touch was so light that he almost let the piano play itself."
