There’s no disputing the remarkable finish, control and sheer beauty characterising Benjamin Grosvenor’s pianism. Gramophone

Born in 1992, Benjamin first came to prominence as the outstanding winner of the Keyboard Final of the 2004 BBC Young Musician Competition at eleven; he was invited to perform with the BBC Symphony Orchestra at the First Night of the Proms in 2011 at nineteen. Also in 2011 Benjamin signed to Decca Classics, and was the inaugural recipient of The Ronnie and Lawrence Ackman Classical Piano Prize with the New York Philharmonic in 2016. No longer a prodigy, he is an established virtuoso. Previous Music TORONTO recitals in 2014, 2015 and 2017.
