Barbican Centre

The masterly young British pianist takes Schumann as his starting point for a musical journey through three different gateways into the Russian soul.

Benjamin Grosvenor’s typically imaginative solo recitals go far beyond the notes on the page. Reviewing a previous Barbican recital, the Daily Telegraph called him ‘a genuine talent of the old school’.

But his combination of youthful virtuosity with an ever-deepening musical intelligence makes his each successive appearance a revelation. In pairing three strikingly different Russian masters with the profoundly Romantic imagination of Robert Schumann, he clearly has something new to say: finding out what is one of 21st-century pianism’s most consistently rewarding pleasures.
