Benjamin Grosvenor, piano

Spivey Hall Debut

Young British virtuoso Benjamin Grosvenor, a “remarkable, exciting talent” who gives “fearless and thrilling” performances (Gramophone), “is a Romantic pianist, almost from another age. He doesn’t deconstruct, or stand at a distance. He jumps inside the music’s soul” (The Times, London). Undeniable is the bravura of his playing, with a sound “poetic and gently ironic, brilliant yet clear-minded, intelligent but not without humor, all translated through a beautifully clear and singing touch” (The Independent).
