Benjamin Grosvenor

Benjamin Grosvenor - Liszt (CD)

Hot on the heels of his 2020 Diapason d’Or and Gramophone Award triumphs, British pianist Benjamin Grosvenor presents his first album in a renewed exclusive partnership with Decca Classics.
This landmark recording for Benjamin is centred around the works of Franz Liszt, the greatest piano virtuoso.
The centrepiece, Liszt’s Sonata in B minor, is considered the summit of the entire Romantic piano repertoire, and the composer’s ultimate masterwork
Also features Liszt’s three remarkable Petrarch Sonnets, among the most beloved of his works, and the dazzling fantasy on Bellini’s ‘Norma’
Closing with a delightfully charming encore, Liszt’s popular transcription of Schubert’s ‘Ave Maria’
