Electrifying British pianist Benjamin Grosvenor was keyboard winner of the 2004 BBC Young Musician aged 11, and performed at the First Night of the Proms aged 19. Since then he’s continued to dazzle with his power, his poetry and his profound musical insights: he brings his exceptional talents to two concerts with the SCO this season.
For the first of them, Grosvenor joins Principal Conductor Maxim Emelyanychev to tackle the breathtakingly virtuosic challenges of Liszt’s first piano concerto, 23 years in the making, and a single compressed movement of gripping intensity, teeming with adventure and drama for soloist and orchestra alike.
Emelyanychev completes his typically wide-ranging programme with visionary spirituality from Sweelinck and Mendelssohn, separated by two centuries, and Beethoven’s first fiery foray into the world of the symphony – designed both to shock and delight Viennese audiences at its 1800 premiere.
