BENJAMIN GROSVENOR

Benjamin Grosvenor

piano

“His solo recitals recall an earlier generation of wizards of the piano.”  —Financial Times

British pianist Benjamin Grosvenor (b.1992) has been described as “the best pianist to come out of England in the last 50 years.” One only needs to listen to his playing to understand that the accolades are well deserved. Grosvenor’s promise was evident from a young age; he was the winner of the Keyboard Final of the 2004 BBC Young Musician Competition at the age of eleven, and was invited to perform with the BBC Symphony Orchestra at the Opening Night of the 2011 BBC Proms at London’s Royal Albert Hall at age nineteen. Turned away from performance by suddenly imposed pandemic precautions while already in Santa Barbara in March 2020, CAMA is delighted to welcome Benjamin Grosvenor back for his proper Santa Barbara and Masterseries debut!

Program:

FRANCK: Prélude, Chorale et Fugue, FWV 21 (1884)
R. SCHUMANN: Kreisleriana, Op.16

“A violinist in a class of his own”  —The Times

 

Canadian James Ehnes has established himself as one of the most treasured violinists of international stages. Acclaimed as “a supreme virtuoso and artist of the first rank” (The Daily Telegraph), James Ehnes plays the “Marsick” Stradivarius (1715). His Santa Barbara debut in July 2019 at the Granada Theatre with the London Symphony Orchestra (presented by the Music Academy of the West) elicited the following glowing concert review: “Ehnes was magnificent throughout, an impressive figure on stage whose playing blazed like a laser beam, though brimming with compassion and heart” (seenandheard-international.com). Ehnes is joined by gifted collaborative pianist Orion Weiss who previously appeared in Masterseries with violinist Augustin Hadelich.

Program:

MOZART: Violin Sonata No.17 in C Major, K.296
SCHUBERT: Fantasy in C Major, D.934
KORNGOLD: Much Ado About Nothing, Suite Op.11
