Benjamin Grosvenor recital - Roman River Festival 2013

Friday, September 27, 2013 - 20:00

Essex-born Benjamin Grosvenor won the BBC Young Musician piano section almost ten years ago, and is now internationally recognized for his electrifying performances.

Benjamin is renowned for his distinctive sound, described as ‘poetic and gently ironic, brilliant yet clear-minded, intelligent but not without humour, all translated through a beautifully clear and singing touch’ (The Independent).
