Young British pianist Benjamin Grosvenor is internationally recognized for his electrifying performances. The youngest of five brothers, Benjamin Grosvenor began playing the piano aged 6. Described by the American Record Guide as a ‘Golden Age’ pianist and one ‘almost from another age’ (The Times), Benjamin is renowned for his distinctive sound. Coming to prominence after winning the Keyboard Final of the 2004 BBC Young Musician Competition at the age of eleven, he has since become an internationally regarded pianist. He has performed with orchestras including the London Philharmonic, RAI Torino, New York Philharmonic, Philharmonia, Tokyo Symphony, and in prestigious venues such as the Royal Festival Hall, Barbican Centre, Singapore’s Victoria Hall, The Frick Collection and Carnegie Hall (at the age of thirteen). In 2011, having just turned nineteen, Benjamin performed with the BBC Symphony Orchestra on the First Night of the BBC Proms to a sold-out Royal Albert Hall. Between 2010 and 2012 he has been part of the BBC New Generation Artists scheme and has recently graduated from the Royal Academy of Music, where he was awarded the 'The Queen's commendation for excellence'. In 2011 Benjamin became the youngest ever British musician ever to sign to the label Decca Classics, and the first British pianist to sign to the label in almost 60 years. During his brief but sensational career to date, Benjamin has been featured in two BBC television documentaries, The Andrew Marr Show, and has had his performances broadcast widely across the world.Read Less
