Hyeyoon’s UK engagements this year include her concerto debut in London with the London Philharmonic Orchestra and Osmo Vänskä.
Since winning the Keyboard Final of the 2004 BBC Young Musician Competition at the age of 11, pianist Benjamin Grosvenor has enjoyed a spectacular career. In 2011 he played at the First Night of the BBC Proms and, in 2015, at the Last Night, playing Shostakovich’s Piano Concerto No. 2. Benjamin Grosvenor has appeared at Malvern Theatres both as a concerto soloist and in solo recital.
