Benjamin Grosvenor

Live from the Barbican

Settle in for a magical evening of sweeping romance and unbridled virtuosity at the hands of one of Britain’s most brilliant and musically intelligent young pianists.

From the beautiful, prayer-like reverence of Ave Maria to the high drama and soaring melodies of Chopin’s final piano sonata, prepare to be totally transfixed as Benjamin Grosvenor conjures up a Romantic piano-lover’s paradise. This is the perfect programme to let your imagination run wild, as Grosvenor paints Ravel’s fantastical musical pictures of siren-voiced water nymphs and skittish goblins scuttling across rooftops alongside Ginastera’s colourful Argentinian caricatures just bubbling with energy.

And all of this performed by a pianist who’s still just 28 years old. Described as ‘one in a million – several million’ by The Independent, Grosvenor’s unique sound, incredible technique, and lightness of touch really are the complete package. Combined with this programme, it’ll be an evening you won’t forget in a hurry.
