Benjamin Grosvenor and Hyeyoon Park recitalSunday 25 June 2017 at 4.30pm
Venue: Westminster Cathedral Hall
ProgrammeThe following will be played:
Benjamin Grosvenor (piano)Benjamin Grosvenor first came to prominence as the outstanding winner of the Keyboard Final of the 2004 BBC Young Musician Competition at the age of eleven. Since then, he has become an internationally regarded pianist performing concerti with orchestras including the London Philharmonic, Tokyo Symphony, and Brazilian Symphony in venues such as the Royal Festival Hall, Barbican, Muza Kawasaki and Carnegie Hall (at the age of thirteen).
In 2011, having just turned nineteen, Benjamin performed with the BBC Symphony Orchestra on the First Night of the BBC Proms to a sold-out Royal Albert Hall. His performance of Liszt’s Piano Concerto No 2 dazzled critics, with The Times commenting on 'the clarity and poetry of his panache, the airy grace of his arpeggios, the lack of flash buckles and bows'.
Benjamin played for the Chopin Society UK when he was nine.
Hyeyoon Park (violin)On the concert platform Hyeyoon Park combines integrity with elegance, focus with panache, all of which makes her an artist of true style and virtuosity. In 2012 Hyeyoon received the London Music Masters Award, which brought her to prominent venues in the UK. Passionate about education, this award has also provided her with a platform to bring her music and performance into London’s schools, many in underprivileged areas. She was previously awarded the Borletti-Buitoni Trust Award in 2011 and she was the youngest ever first prize winner of the ARD International Music Competition in Munich.
