I heard Benjamin Grosvenor on the the radio this morning. The Today programme were interviewing him as he is to play the Liszt 2nd Piano Concerto with the BBC Symphony Orchestra at the first night of The Proms - the youngest soloist ever to play on the opening night.
I met Benjamin Grosvenor back on 2008, creating some visual assets around the recording of ‘This and That’ for the Bowers & Wilkins Society of Sound. Once he was at the piano he transcended any idea of age and became probably the most assured person in the room.
