Benjamin Grosvenor, piano

 

“He commands the stage with aristocratic ease…Mr. Grosvenor makes you sigh with joy…A temperament rare in yesteryear, let alone now.” (New York Times)

Bursting onto the scene after he won the Keyboard Final of the 2004 BBC Young Musician Competition at the age of 11, Benjamin Grosvenor leaves rapturous audiences in his wake wherever he goes. His electrifying performances, dazzling sound, and insightful interpretations are in display through both his virtuosic command over the most arduous technical complexities and the remarkable depth and understanding of his music making. Described as “one in a million…several million” by the Independent, Grosvenor makes his UMS debut with this recital program featuring Liszt and Schumann.
