“ Benjamin Grosvenor may well be the most remarkable young pianist of our time” says The Times – and they’ve got a point! We’re thrilled to team him up with Birmingham’s rising star Alpesh Chauhan in Brahms’ torrential First Piano Concerto; and we think the results are going to be something truly special. The serenity and optimism of Sibelius’s mighty Fifth Symphony make it the perfect foil to Brahms’ tragic grandeur.
