Peoples' Symphony: Benjamin Grosvenor, Piano
Schumann: Blumenstück, Op.19 Schumann: Kreisleriana, Op. 16 Janácek: Piano Sonata 1. X. 1905 "The Street" Prokofiev: Visions fugitives, Op. 22 (a selection) Bellini/Liszt: Réminiscences de Norma BIO: British pianist Benjamin Grosvenor is internationally recognised for his electrifying performances, distinctive sound and insightful interpretations. His virtuosic command over the most arduous technical complexities underpins the remarkable depth and understanding of his music making. Described as "one in a million...several million" by The Independent, he has also been lauded as "a keyboard visionary" by the Süddeutsche Zeitung. Benjamin first came to prominence as the outstanding winner of the Keyboard Final of the 2004 BBC Young Musician Competition at the age of eleven, and he was invited to perform with the BBC Symphony Orchestra at the First Night of the 2011 BBC Proms aged just nineteen. A pianist of widespread international acclaim, he made his New York Philharmonic debut last season with four sold-out performances of Beethoven Concerto No. 3 which the New York Times praised for its " beautiful shadings, keen attention to inner voices and tremendous imagination."
