Young Musician of the Year Finalist exclusive recording

We were looking for a classical artist to be represented in our B&W Music Club and a senior engineer at Abbey Road suggested young pianist Benjamin Grosvenor.

Having won the Keyboard Final of the BBC young Musician of the Year in 2004 age eleven, Benjamin has been growing steadily in stature with two documentaries and a number of critical acclaimed appearances at Carnegie Hall, The Barbican and the Royal Albert Hall amongst others under his belt.

He signed a development deal with EMI but up until now had yet to record anything. Usually all our Music Club albums are recorded at Peter Gabriel’s Real World but Benjamin wanted a different kind of space and settled on the prestigious Yehudi Menuhin school. There he has recorded a beautifully judged selection of music including Chopin, Brahms and Kapustin exclusively for us. Listening to the recording here, it’s hard to believe that a sixteen year old can play with such poise and confidence.

Available for one month from the 21st November, this is an exceptional album and one we’re very proud to have commissioned
