“Musical prodigy” is what comes to mind when you learn that 19-year-old British pianist Benjamin Grosvenor, now in his third year at the Royal Academy of Music, chose his instrument at age six, and by age eleven he had won the BBC Young Musician of the Year competition as the youngest-ever finalist in the competition. Since then, Benjamin has become one of the most sought-after young pianists working with an array of respected conductors, performing with orchestras on several continents. He’s even been featured in two BBC television documentaries and is the first British pianist to sign to Decca Classics in almost 60 years.
