Benjamin Grosvenor made an impression on audiences as an 11-year-old, becoming the youngest winner of the BBC's Young Musician of the Year in the keyboard division in 2004.
In 2011, he became the youngest British musician to sign with Decca, and was also the label's first British pianist signed since the 1950s. In the intervening years, Grosvenor made debuts in New York and London, and performed with the London Philharmonic, the Brazilian Symphony, and the Tokyo Symphony. He continued to add to his "youngest" distinctions by becoming the youngest soloist to date to open the 2011 BBC Proms concert season. His debut album featured the music of Chopin, Liszt, and Ravel. Grosvenor frequently performs solo recitals and also maintains his interest in chamber music.
