Liszt: Sonata in B minor
Ravel: Le tombeau de Couperin
Ravel: La valse
British pianist Benjamin Grosvenor is internationally recognized for his sonorous lyricism and understated brilliance at the keyboard. His virtuosic interpretations are underpinned by a unique balance of technical mastery and intense musicality. Benjamin has been heralded one of the most important pianists to emerge from the UK in several decades. Grosvenor solo programme will open with Busoni’s 1893 piano transcription of the famous Bach Chaconne for violin solo moving along to Piano Sonata in B minor which Liszt dedicated Schumann in 1854. The programme concludes with two pieces by Ravel, Le tombeau de Couperin, Ravel’s homage to the traditional baroque suite, and La valse, a choreographed poem originally conceived as a ballet but now heard as a concert work.
This programme runs approximately 100 mins with one intermission.
