The youngest British pianist (by far) in this review, Benjamin Grosvenor, is also the most fearless. His new release, a complete delight, wipes the field with three Kapustin etudes. After some tender Scarlatti, Grosvenor heads straight into three pieces from Albéniz’s Iberia and he easily handles the finger-breaking Cziffra transcriptions… Here is a young master to be reckoned with.’
