Returning to the Festival for the third time, and after his performance at the BBC Last Night of the Proms in 2015, Britain’s leading young pianist gives an afternoon recital of music by Mendelssohn, Chopin, Ravel and Liszt.
In 2011 Benjamin Grosvenor was the youngest-ever soloist to perform at the opening night of the BBC Proms. Now one of the most sought-after young pianists in the world, he is internationally renowned for his electrifying performances, distinctive sound and insightful interpretations, with a virtuosic command over the most strenuous technical complexities underpinning the remarkable depth and understanding of his musicianship.
“Benjamin Grosvenor may well be the most remarkable young pianist of our time.” Gramophone Magazine
