Music & Movement celebrates the colourful influence of dance in piano music, brought to you by four talented and prominent young pianists. From Baroque court and traditional folk dances, to the swirling ballrooms of Vienna, and to the more abstract, ecstatic dance of the cosmic variety, this year’s Piano Festival promises four uplifting evenings of passionate music-making.

At the age of only 20, Benjamin Grosvenor has already established himself as one of the most sought after young pianists in the world. Grosvenor’s career highlights include performing to a sold-out Royal Albert Hall with the BBC Symphony Orchestra on the First Night of the 2011 BBC Proms, a 15-recital tour of Germany that drew extensive accolades, two Gramophone Awards and a Diapason d’Or. The outstanding winner of the Keyboard Final of the 2004 BBC Young Musician Competition will introduce palpable elements of dance in his recital, including works by Chopin, a selection of mazurkas and a waltz by Scriabin, colourful Spanish dances by Granados, and a grand virtuoso reworking of Johann Strauss’ ubiquitous Blue Danube.
