Heeding the Siren Call of Chopin: Pianist Benjamin Grosvenor  
Thursday, June 29

Pianist Benjamin Grosvenor returns to solo with the Seattle Symphony in Benaroya Hall this week.   Music director Ludovic Morlot invited Benjamin to perform in the orchestra’s Rachmaninoff Festival in 2013, an event showcasing the talents of extraordinary young international soloists.  Benjamin first attracted the attention of the music loving world as an 11 year-old when he won the BBC Young Musician Competition. By age 13 he was making his American debut in Carnegie Hall playing a Ravel Concerto.  We’ve been particularly fortunate in Seattle to hear this much in demand artist relatively often.  His fourth appearance in Seattle since 2012 happens this week when he performs the Chopin Second Piano Concerto on June 28th, 30th and July 1st with the Seattle Symphony.  Dave Beck spoke with Benjamin Grosvenor about how Chopin was one of the first composer’s to capture Benjamin’s ears and imagination when he began his piano journey at age 6.
