Since bursting on to the music scene in 2004 at the age of 11, Benjamin Grosvenor has become an internationally regarded pianist and is now one of the world’s most sought after young musicians. This is Benjamin’s third appearance for the VRS and his first at the Chan Centre.

“The darling of British pianophiles since his victory in the keyboard finals of the BBC Young Musician of the Year competition in 2004, Mr. Grosvenor, in his Carnegie Hall recital debut at Zankel Hall on Thursday, proved a boy lord of the piano.” – New York Times
