Benjamin Grosvenor

Schumann & Brahms: CD


Release date: 22 September, 2023

On this album, pianist Benjamin Grosvenor explores works which shed a fascinating light on the complicated relationships between composers Robert Schumann, Clara Schumann and Johannes Brahms. Including the haunting Kreisleriana, often considered Schumann’s finest and most complex composition for piano, and  Romance, the piece which Clara requested was played on her deathbed.

“This is an album that reaffirms Grosvenor’s status as one of the most accomplished pianists around.”
