Still only in his mid-twenties, British pianist Benjamin Grosvenor is wowing audiences (and fellow musicians) on a global scale. “Electrifying,” “unimaginable brilliance,” hailed The Times, London. And Gramophone magazine wrote, “(Grosvenor) may well be the most remarkable pianist of our time.”

Hear him in his highly anticipated 92Y debut, featuring piano masterworks from Bach to Brahms to Berg. The program will also include a rarely performed transcription of Debussy’s beautiful Prelude to L’après-midi d’un faune and Ravel’s dazzling pianistic jewel, Gaspard de la nuit.

“Benjamin Grosvenor delivers virtuosity beyond his years. If you haven’t heard him, hear him now.”
