At just 20 years old, pianist Benjamin Grosvenor has already electrified the music world with his spell-binding performances. In 2011, The Daily Telegraph named him one of the “Top 10 Britons of the Year,” and he became Gramophone’s youngest ever double-award winner.

That, and Joseph Giunta concludes his 25th Anniversary Season with his favorite Brahms symphony.
