British pianist Benjamin Grosvenor is internationally recognized for his electrifying performances and insightful interpretations. His virtuosic command over the most strenuous technical complexities underpins the remarkable depth and understanding of his musicianship. Benjamin is renowned for his distinctive sound, described as ‘poetic and gently ironic, brilliant yet clear-minded, intelligent but not without humour, all translated through a beautifully clear and singing touch’ (The Independent) making him one of the most sought-after young pianists in the world.
The Wallis is honored to host the Los Angeles debut of Grosvenor in a vast program of sonatas by Mozart, Beethoven and Scriabin.
