“An electric current sizzles in this pianist’s fingertips.” The Financial Times

Benjamin Grosvenor first hit the headlines in 2004 when he became the youngest ever finalist in the BBC Young Musician of the Year competition, aged just 11. Seven years later he appeared as the youngest ever soloist to perform on the opening night of the BBC Proms. His developing career has earned him worldwide recognition as a pianist of immense sensibility.

This is sure to be a fabulous evening of pianistic virtuosity, culminating with Liszt’s sensational Reminiscences of Bellini’s grand opera Norma, an unashamedly flamboyant and riotous work.
