“I love his music. Grant Foster has a rare ability to compose melodic and imaginative works demonstrating a high level of sophistication.”
Available online as CD or as high quality downloads at:
“Melody and harmony are paramount for me.
I’ve always stuck to that as my core belief in music. It’s overwhelmingly important to move the listener.
Audiences like to feel their emotions being expressed through music in a way they can relate to.”
Grant Foster ~ Gramophone, March 2008.
“This is amazing! Where has Grant Foster been all these years? The Celebration Overture simply blew me away!
I really haven’t heard anything as striking as this for a long while.”
Andrew Lamb ~ Gramophone, March 2008.
“Foster’s 'Rhapsody for Piano and Orchestra: War; Peace; Love.' is a revelation.
I have no reservation about recommending his music, which one hopes will inspire Grant Foster to compose additional works
so we can have recordings of Foster piano concertos, symphonies or chamber music rather than the umpteenth version
of a Beethoven, Brahms or Mozart warhorse.”
Bob Crimeen ~ Melbourne Sun, April 1986.
"Foster has a real gift for touchingly lyrical inventiveness - an adept at a world of styles in which his pleasing creativity is at ease.
Let's hope we get to hear the two piano concertos before long - not to mention 'The Pearl of Dubai Suite'."
"I am indebted to Gramophone critic Andrew Lamb for making me aware of this wonderful music.
I make no apology for the length of this review - it simply deserves it."
David Ades ~ RFS Magazine, December, 2008. (Extract from a lengthy review.)
