Friends of Chamber Music closes season

In the final concert of its 58th season, Friends of Chamber Music of Miami, South Florida’s longest running chamber music series, will present the young British piano virtuoso Benjamin Grosvenor (shown here) and the brilliant New York-based Escher String Quartet.

The concert will take place at 8 pm, Tuesday, May 6 at the University of Miami’s Gusman Concert Hall. Tickets are $35/$10 students.

Appearing together on tour this season, Mr. Grosvenor and the Eschers will be heard together in one of the most enduring chamber works of the 19th century, the Piano Quintet No. 2 in A Major, Op. 81 by Antonin Dvorak. In his solo portion of the program, Mr. Grosvenor will be heard in works of Mendelssohn, Schubert and Gounod/Liszt.

Mr. Grosvenor and the Escher Quartet are among the most highly regarded musicians of the younger generation.

The 21-year-old first came to prominence as the outstanding winner of the Keyboard Final of the 2004 BBC Young Musician Competition at the age of 11. Since then, he has performed with orchestras including the London Philharmonic, RAI Torino, New York Philharmonic, Philharmonia, Tokyo Symphony, and in venues such as the Royal Festival Hall, Barbican Centre, Singapore’s Victoria Hall, The Frick Collection and Carnegie Hall (at the age of 13).

The University of Miami Gusman Concert Hall is located at 1314 Miller Drive, Coral Gables. For further information and to order tickets visit www.miamichambermusic.org or call 305 372-2975.
