Benjamin Grosvenor, piano

See Event Description
Benjamin Grosvenor’s individual sound as well as the sense of freedom in his approach recall a bygone golden era of pianism. In a rave review of his 2015 recital debut at Carnegie Hall, a New York Times critic declared him the “boy lord of the piano,” and Gramophone named him its Young Artist of the Year. For his PCMS debut, Grosvenor undertakes a challenging, provocative program highlighted by Ravel’s Gaspard de la nuit, a piece long considered to be one of the most demanding virtuoso works in the entire piano literature and which presents daunting technical and interpretive challenges. Bach: French Suite in G Major, BWV 816 Brahms/Dean: Four Pieces, Op. 119/Hommage à Brahms Debussy: L’Après midi d’un faune [Arr. Borwick/Copeland] Berg: Piano Sonata, Op. 1 Ravel: Gaspard de la nuit
