Benjamin Grosvenor

Schumann & Brahms (CD)

Benjamin explores works which shed a fascinating light on the complicated relationships between composers Robert Schumann, Clara Schumann and Johannes Brahms. Including the haunting Kreisleriana, often considered Schumann’s finest and most complex composition for piano. Robert’s Romance was the piece which Clara requested was played on her deathbed, and Brahms’ Intermezzi references Robert’s ‘Clara’s theme’ throughout.

Benjamin’s most recent albums have garnered him a Gramophone Award, another Gramophone nomination, and a Choc Classica.
