Benjamin Grosvenor, piano
About the Event
British pianist Benjamin Grosvenor (b.1992) has been described as “the best pianist to come out of England in the last 50 years,” and “one of the world’s most sought-after young pianists.” One needs only to listen to him play to understand the accolades are well-deserved; his playing is reminiscent of legendary pianists that are long gone—Rachmaninoff, Schnabel, Rubinstein, Serkin. His promise was evident from a young age—the winner of the Keyboard Final of the 2004 BBC Young Musician Competition at the age of eleven, and at nineteen invited to perform with the BBC Symphony
Orchestra at the Opening Night of the 2011 BBC Proms at London’s Royal Albert Hall. The upcoming concert will mark his Santa Barbara recital debut.
