His big note mistake at 20:20 is his karmic punishment for taking such a fast tempo and terrorizing the bassoonists in their notorious passage.

What an amazing performance. Such wisdom in the execution of this difficult, sophisticated piece. Boy wonder !

he has played a recital every year here in Miami for about 5 years now and to watch him grow as a pianist over the years has been inspiring - he returns again on 3/5/19 to enchant us

The description of the "Music in this video" is way off. The orchestra is the BBC Scottish Symphony, and the conductor Ilan Volkov. James Judd and the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic recorded the piece with Grosvenor about a decade later.

I've heard pretty much all the youtube videos of this concert. Ben at the age of 12 plays the 2nd movement like no one. Perfect balance, poetic, emotional, with the peaceful mind of a young boy with an old soul. ..all the acomplished pianists tend to get too emotional and over express , emphasize too much this beautiful addagio asai. To me this is the perfect version, the purest one.. simply divine

Only one thing, if I may:
Second movement way too fast. This way you don't achieve the astounding dreamfulness
of the piece. Otherwise amazing.

Watching young Mr. Grosvenor can only affirm a believe in divine providence. Oh, I know how hard he worked, but the sheer innate ability, at such a tender age, is so special. Simply wonderful and amazing.

Idiot audience won't even stand up for that? Unbelievable.

His teacher probably taught him the tiresome obligatory handshakes at the end. Pianists should not give their hands immediately to the conductor. Why not just take a bow? So sick of this.

This performance of one of my favourite works absolutely mesmerised me! I had, (and have!) never heard a better performance. Totally amazing.
What I like even more, is that he has gone on to 'greater' things, and there are now several of his performances on Youtube. Each one has brought me a new insight into the work, and has provided a new thinking, which is so rare. All played with the same dedication and care that he shows here - no flamboyance or showmanship.
Wonderful, wonderful man. More power to him.
As an example, hear him play Liszt No 2 , opening the Proms at the age of 18! Absolutely my favourite, even eclipsing Richter for me, which I never thought possible.
BTW - Darren Motise, I sympathise with you, but we must remember that the conductor is the person who prepares the piece in rehearsal, so the orchestra and soloist will be used to his ways. The performance is only the culmination of all the hard work that goes on beforehand, which is why he, (she) gets the plaudits, rather in the same way as the director of a film. Just a thought! Lol.

And to think he didn't even win the overall prize. Insane.

The conductor gave the crappiest prep beat at the start. It's a miracle the pianist started right. Imagine, this young boy with all this talent, and yet these arm-wavers usually get all the attention, for dancing on a podium and confusing orchestras with their lousy beat patterns. I'm not a fan of conductors.

He plays the final ascending passage as a chromatic scale because his hands probably couldn't comfortably reach the minor 9ths in the score. (But I don't recall if the scale is an ossia or not.) Amazing. (Funny, how we never saw him on Ellen, which is reserved for the fake prodigies whose parents claim their kids have talent, when they don't.)

You should hear him now. I just heard him in the front row at Lincoln Center, playing Beethoven Third with the New York Philharmonic. It was one of the greatest concerto performances I've ever heard in my entire life. Great audience response too. He gave every last note full attention, and played with great musicianship and colossal virtuosity. Never even smudged in the slightest. I was 8 feet from his hands, and he was in utter command.

Finally, a pianist who doesn't irritate the hell out of me with fakeness. Bravo.

This boy must be the love-child of Susan Boyle and her ex-boyfriend. The resemblance is so striking.

I never even heard this Ravel piece before. It starts out sounding like Stravinsky then takes a hard left into Gershwinville all in the first movement.

What a beautiful piece this is, so sensitively played, with such remarkable concentration and skill a joy to listen to! Also great to see his progression.

It's like watching a very old soul in a young persons body. I'm sure of it.

Joe Sullivan
Such amazing concentration! Notice how he cites the 2nd movement as the most difficult because of its poetry. He really plays the piano with his brain.
