Benjamin Grosvenor - Mendelssohn, Schubert, Schumann, Ravel (part 2)

Young British pianist Benjamin Grosvenor plays works by Mendelssohn, Schubert, Schumann and Ravel live from Wigmore Hall

Mendelssohn: Rondo Capriccioso in E, Op 14
Schubert: Impromptu in G flat, D899 No 3
Schumann: Humoreske in B flat, Op 20


Mompou: Paisajes
Medtner: 2 Fairy Tales
Ravel: Valses nobles et sentimentales
Gounod/Liszt: Valse from Faust

Benjamin Grosvenor presents a typically searching, richly-varied programme: teenage Mendelssohn gives way to mature Schubert while elusive Schumann and Medtner contrast with the virtuosity and colour of Ravel and of Liszt's fiendish transcription of Gounod's Faust.
