Join us in late May as 'The Season' gets into full swing. Staying in Stratford Upon Avon for three nights we start with a private recital by young singers from the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire and Rossini's glorious Il barbiere di Siviglia at Garsington Opera set on the Wormsley Estate of the Getty family in the heart of Buckinghamshire. While we are very disappointed at the cancellation of Nevill Holt's performance we are delighted to have been able to secure keyboard side top price tickets at Symphony Hall for Benjamin Grosvenor playing Chopin's 2nd Piano Concerto with the CBSO. Ben won the BBC Young Musician of the Year back in 2004 and some of you may remember that Milena Grenfell-Baines immediately invited him and his family to the International Chopin Festival in Marianske Lazne. Now at 30 he is considered perhaps THE outstanding Chopin exponent of his generation.
Watch and hear Ben's thoughts on the Chopin Concerti in this youtube video:
