Here is Daniel talking about and illustrating music by Adolf von Henselt (you may remember he played some in his recital last August as an encore).
His recent CD of Henslet's piano music has won huge praise from the national press and in the specialist music press (see eg. the Guardian  and Gramophone reviews).
