Benjamin Grosvenor's new Decca album focuses on one composer, Franz Liszt. The album includes the B minor Sonata as well as the Petrarch Sonnets, the Réminiscences de Norma and some shorter works. Gramophone's Reviews Editor, Tim Parry, caught up with Benjamin for this new Gramophone Podcast.
Grosvenor, a former Gramophone Young Artist of the Year and Instrumental Award winner, was introduced to the music of Liszt at an early age, and he talks about his experience of performing the composer's music and the different works on this new album.
Gramophone Podcasts are presented in association with Wigmore Hall, where the music continues despite lockdown with 40 streamed concerts every weekday from Monday, February 22 until April 3, 2021.
