Benjamin releases Beethoven on Decca Classics

As rivals, Benedetti, Grosvenor and Kanneh-Mason were powerful; as allies and advocates they are unstoppable.” (The Sunday Times)

Announced today is the most recent addition to British pianist Benjamin Grosvenor’s discography on the Decca catalogue, his eighth with the label. Alongside two other celebrated classical artists — Nicola Benedetti and Sheku Kanneh-Mason — the trio bring Beethoven’s Triple Concerto to Decca Classics for the first time. Alongside the Philharmonia Orchestra and their Principal Conductor Santtu-Matias Rouvali, the collaboration has been met with critical acclaim, with the musicians uniting “in a mutual celebration of their three instruments … working in harmony without losing any of their distinct personalities. Their approach was virtuosic, sympathetic, and full of character." (The Sunday Times). Accompanying the Triple are a selection of Beethoven’s rarely heard folk song settings, sung by baritone Gerald Finley, and the trio alone closes the album with Kreisler’s enchanting arrangement of Londonderry Air, more commonly known as 'Danny Boy’; a perfectly empathetic counterpart to the Beethoven alongside which it sits.

The album will be released on 31st May 2024 and the first track (Largo) is available now. []
