Notes & Reviews:

Pianist Benjamin Grosvenor returns with a solo recital of works by Bach/Busoni, Mendelssohn, Franck, Chopin and Liszt. Starting with Busoni's transcription of Bach's Chaconne in D minor, the recital celebrates various works that pay homage such as Liszt's Venezia e Napoli of the Années de pèlerinage, each of which is based on a pre-existing song.
