Classic Conversation: May 2013: Sinfonia Cymru, Carlo Rizzi, Benjamin Grosvenor
This May, Sinfonia Cymru launches an exciting new strand, ‘Classic Conversations’ which brings artists together to explore repertoire that really means something to them.
To begin this new project, International Maestro Carlo Rizzi and acclaimed British pianist Benjamin Grosvenor join Sinfonia Cymru to do just that and share with audiences their passion for these romantic masterpieces by Mendelssohn, Schumann, Scriabin and Beethoven.
Mendelssohn: Hebrides Overture
Schumann: Piano Concerto in A Minor
Scriabin: Mazurka’s Op. 3
Beethoven: Symphony No 2

Carlo Rizzi tour dates
Benjamin 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 with orchestras including the London Philharmonic, RAI Torino, New York Philharmonic, Philharmonia, Tokyo Symphony, and in venues such as the Royal Festival Hall, Barbican Centre, Singapore's Victoria Hall, The Frick Collection 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 has worked with numerous esteemed conductors including Vladimir Ashkenazy, Jiøí Bìlohlávek, Semyon Bychkov and Vladimir Jurowski.
'... a skill and talent not heard since Kissin's teenage Russian debut’(Bryce Morrison, Gramophone Magazine)
'... a formidable technician and a thoughtful, coolly assured interpreter' (Allan Kozinn, New York Times).
