Benjamin Grosvenor, piano

British pianist Benjamin Grosvenor (b.1992) has been described as “the best pianist to come out of England in the last 50 years,” and “one of the world’s most sought-after young pianists.” One needs only to listen to him play to understand the accolades are well-deserved; his playing is reminiscent of legendary pianists that are long gone—Rachmaninoff, Schnabel, Rubinstein, Serkin. His promise was evident from a young age—the winner of the Keyboard Final of the 2004 BBC Young Musician Competition at the age of eleven, and at nineteen invited to perform with the BBC Symphony
Orchestra at the Opening Night of the 2011 BBC Proms at London’s Royal Albert Hall. The upcoming concert will mark his Santa Barbara recital debut.

Founded in 1918, the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra has now passed the century mark

in a long Dutch tradition of musical excellence. After a close call in the 1940s, when German

bombs destroyed their hall, their music library and all of their instruments, the orchestra rebuilt

with community support and has been going strong ever since. Conducted by Israel’s

Lahav Shani (winner of the first prize at the 2013 International Gustav Mahler Conducting

Competition), the program includes Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No.4—with Shani as soloist!—

and Bartók’s virtuosic Concerto for Orchestra.

In 2011 Benjamin signed to Decca

Classics, becoming the youngest British

musician ever, and the first British pianist

in almost 60 years, to sign to the label. Benjamin’s

most recent CD on the label, Homages,

explores works in which celebrated

composers pay tribute to their predecessors,

and includes Busoni’s transcription

of Bach’s great solo violin Chaconne,

Franck’s Choral, Prelude and Fugue and

Liszt’s tribute to Italian folk song, Venezia

e Napoli. Named Instrumental Recording of

the Month in BBC Music Magazine, the disc

was also awarded a Diapason d'Or, with Diapason's

critic declaring that “his pianistic

ingenuity, his lyrical voice and aristocratic

distinction remind one of the young Josef

Hofmann or Ignaz Friedman. The whole recital

is charged with Romantic élan.”

During his sensational career to date,

Benjamin has received Gramophone’s

Young Artist of the Year and Instrumental

Awards, a Classic Brits Critics’ Award, UK

Critics’ Circle Award for Exceptional Young

Talent and a Diapason d’Or Jeune Talent

Award. He has been featured in two BBC

television documentaries, BBC Breakfast

and The Andrew Marr Show, as well as in

CNN’s Human to Hero series.

The youngest of five brothers, Benjamin

began playing the piano aged 6. He

studied at the Royal Academy of Music

with Christopher Elton and Daniel-Ben

Pienaar, where he graduated in 2012 with

the ‘Queen’s Commendation for Excellence’

and in 2016 was awarded a Fellowship

from the institution. Benjamin has

been supported since 2013 by EFG International,

the widely respected global private

banking group.

20 CAMA'S 101ST CONCERT SEASON


NOTES

on the program

By Howard Posner

Jean-Philippe Rameau was known late in

his life, and today, as the greatest French

opera composer of the mid-18th century,

but he was 50 years old when his first

opera was staged in 1733. Before that he

was a church organist and the preeminent

musical theorist of the day. His 1722 Treatise

on Harmony established the way musicians

thought, and talked, about harmony.

Even now, we still use terms like “tonic”

and “dominant” because of it. Two of his

four books of harpsichord music also date

from the 1720’s. The piece that opens the

program is from Nouvelles Suites de Pièces

de Clavecin, published in about 1727 (the

volume bears no date), and is titled simply

“Gavotte” (a familiar dance form), followed

by six pieces labeled “First Double,” “Second

Double,” and so on for six doubles.

A “double” was a type of variation in

which the tempo and harmonic sequence

of the original dance stayed the same, but

the melodic line was elaborated in faster

notes. The term “double” probably originated

in simple arithmetic, as substituting

16th-notes for eighth notes means playing

twice as many notes; the English called the

Jean-Philippe Rameau by Jean-Jacques Caffieri,

terracotta (1760)

same technique “divisions” for the same

reason. All musicians learned how to improvise

doubles or divisions, and would

have looked at a set of them by a master

like Rameau as not only a worthwhile addition

to their repertoire, but also a lesson in

how it’s done.

Robert Schumann’s Kreisleriana represents

the convergence of his imagination

with a fictional creation of E.T.A. Hoffman

(1776–1822), who himself seems like a

fictional character written by an overly enthusiastic

author unable to make choices.

22 CAMA'S 101ST CONCERT SEASON


Hoffman is now known mostly for his fiction,

but he also had a substantial reputation

as a composer that is well supported

by surviving works that include six operas,

five piano sonatas, four chamber works,

a symphony, a ballet, incidental music

and several liturgical pieces. He was also

known as a music critic, and to this day is

celebrated as the writer who made music

criticism an important genre. His career including

work as a painter, stagehand, playwright,

music director of a theater and an

opera house, Prussian government official

in Warsaw, and judge in a Berlin court, before

he died of syphilis in 1822.

Hoffman’s stories are the basis not

only of Offenbach’s Tales of Hoffman, but

also Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker and Delibes’s

Coppelia.

The Hoffman creation that inspired

Schumann was Johannes Kreisler, a fictional

violinist and music director who

appears in three Hoffman novels: Kreisleriana

(1813), The Musical Sufferings of the

Robert and Clara Schumann by Eduard Kaiser (1847)

Kapellmeister Johannes Kreisler (1815), and

The Life and Opinions of the Tomcat Murr

together with a fragmentary Biography of

Kapellmeister Johannes Kreisler on Random

Sheets of Waste Paper (1822). The last was

exactly what the title described: a cat’s

writings about life written on discarded

pages of a biography about Kreisler. It has

been described as a work that could pass

for late-20th-century postmodernism.

Schumann, who was himself better

known as a music critic than a composer,

must have seen Hoffman, who died when

Schumann was ten, as a kindred mind. He

must have seen an even more kindred spirit

in the character of Kreisler, who was created

when Schumann was three and had

never died. Kreisler was passionate, given

to irreverence expressed in trenchant wit,

and prone to huge mood swings: he seems

to have been what until recently was called

“manic depressive.”

Schumann was all of those things. He

suffered from debilitating depression in

which “my heart pounds sickeningly and I

turn pale … I often feel as if I were dead.”

He also had manic periods of astonishing

creative productivity, during which he did

much of his composing.

Kreisler and Hoffman were scarcely

the only thing Schumann would have been

thinking of when he composed Kreisleriana

in 1838. He was much focused on

Clara Wieck, the 19-year-old daughter of

Schumann’s former piano teacher, a worldrenowned

pianist in her own right since

she was 11, a composer of considerable

MASTERSERIES AT THE LOBERO THEATRE • BENJAMIN GROSVENOR

23


ability, and Schumann’s fiancée since the

previous year. When her father adamantly

refused to allow them to marry, they sued

for a court order allowing the marriage. The

court would eventually rule in their favor in

1840, just in time for them to wed the day

before Clara turned 21 and no longer needed

parental consent to marry.

In the meantime, as the court case

dragged on, Clara spent much of her time

concertizing away from her Leipzig home,

which at least allowed them to exchange

correspondence that her father forbade

when he was watching her at home.

Schumann wrote nothing but piano music

during those years. This had actually been

the case all during the 1830s, his first decade

of composition, but from mid-decade,

when his relationship with Clara turned romantic,

he produced a flood of important

piano works that were not only inspired

by his feelings for Clara the woman, but

geared to the keen musical intelligence of

Clara the performer.

“I have noticed that my imagination is

never so lively as when it is anxiously extended

toward you,” he wrote to her in May

1838. “While waiting for a letter from you, I

composed enough to fill eleven volumes.”

The music from those few years included

major efforts like the three Sonatas,

Carnaval, the Davidsbündlertanze, the

Scenes from Childhood, the Fantasie in C,

and Arabeske, as well as a good number

of lesser ones, such as the Carnival Jest

from Vienna that he sent to Clara in Paris

after she wrote to ask him for a “something

brilliant and easy to understand,” that was

“written for an audience.”

Clara and Robert both knew he was

getting far ahead of his audience, and Kreisleriana

was in the vanguard of his musical

development and his emotions. He wrote

to her that he was writing “extraordinary

music, at times mad, at times solemn and

dreamy … You will open your eyes wide

when you decipher it. Do you know, sometimes

I have the notion that I shall end up

bursting with music, the ideas so press and

seethe within me when I dream of our love.

… Have you played my Kreisleriana? Some

of the pages contain a truly savage love.”

“You shock me sometimes,” Clara

wrote back. “I wonder if it is true that this

man will be my husband?”

Kreisleriana is full of abrupt and sometimes

violent contrasts. Its very opening

is not only emotionally turbulent, but unsettled

harmonically and rhythmically (the

notes that are most prominent melodically

are off the beat). The movements that follow

are in the same mold. Dreamy, hauntingly

beautiful sections (the main part of

the second movement and middle section

of the third movement, for example) abut

sections of great agitation. The music

seems to explore a landscape of bipolar

mood swings in all their facets.

Franz Liszt and Schumann were the

same age, but came to stand for different

aesthetics. Indeed, they came to represent

a divide in the generation of composers

that came after Beethoven and considered

themselves his artistic heirs. On one side

were the ones now sometimes simplistically

called classic-romantics, exemplified

MASTERSERIES AT THE LOBERO THEATRE • BENJAMIN GROSVENOR

Lending Banking Investing


y Schumann and Mendelssohn and then,

after their early deaths, by Brahms. They

believed music should be carefully worked

out and integrated, and relied on traditional

forms, of which the sonata had been king

since Mozart’s time. On the other side was

the dramatically-oriented music of what

would soon be called the “New German

School,” of which Liszt and Wagner were

considered the standard bearers

It became fashionable in musicological

circles to think of Lizst and similarlyminded

composers as forward-thinking

“Romantics” and Schumann as a traditiongrounded

“Classic-Romantic” but it’s hardly

necessary to point out the inadequacy

of that way of pigeonholing to an audience

that has just heard Kreisleriana.

Had Liszt died at 40, he would be remembered

as the father of modern pianism,

and not just because of his advances

in technique. A piano recital like the present

one is Liszt’s invention. The model for

a public concert before Liszt had the composer-performer

play his own solo compositions

and improvisations, interspersed

with chamber music and songs or, if there

was an orchestra, a symphony and concerto.

Liszt originated the public “recital”

(he also originated the word) in which one

pianist performed alone, playing from the

entire known repertoire, including composers

long dead, and playing from memory.

Even the practice of putting the piano sidelong

to the audience was his idea (it allows

the sound of the instrument to resonate off

the open lid toward the audience, but also

presents the player in profile, and Liszt was

Franz Liszt (1858)

aware that his profile made an impression).

Liszt had great respect for Schumann.

The Schumanns liked Liszt personally but

had decidedly mixed feelings about his music,

which they thought often too splashy

and showy and not well constructed or

thought out.

Liszt may have had thoughts along

those lines himself. By 1848, he was famous

for his pianistic skill, famous for the

scandal of his two liaisons with married

aristocratic women, famous for being a

Hungarian national hero, famous for piano

pieces that pushed the envelope of virtuosity,

famous for piano transcriptions and

arrangements that did for the symphony

what recordings would do a century later,

and famous for being famous. What he

was not famous for was being a serious

composer. In 1848, he gave up touring as

a piano virtuoso to become Kapellmeister

at the court of the Grand Duke of Saxe-

Weimar-Eisenach in Weimar. Directing the

concerts and operas of a court musical

establishment, choosing music, planning

programs, hiring musicians and scheduling

rehearsals was a very old-fashioned kind

of job—aristocratic courts were getting

rarer—and an improbable career move for

music’s biggest star, which was why he did

it. It allowed him to plunge his hands up to

the elbows in a broad-based musical experience,

learn how the orchestra worked, and

learn other composers’ music from the inside

out. He must have expected to acquire

a better understanding of composition.

While at Weimar, Lizst wrote a book

about Frederic Chopin, who had died in

1849. The writing process included immersion

in Chopin’s music, and Liszt wound up

producing a few musical tributes to his late

friend. His Berceuse (a berceuse is a piece

in the nature of a lullaby) is in D-flat major,

the same key as Chopin’s opus 57, and is

among Liszt’s more Chopinesque works.

He composed the first version at Weimar

in 1854. The second version, on tonight’s

program, dates from 1862.

The most visible result of Liszt’s Weimar

immersion is the B-minor sonata that

he wrote in 1853 and published a year later.

It shows his focus on developing ideas into

a coherent large structure rather than transitory

effects, an attempt to meld his own

dazzling style with the sobriety and logic

of Schumann. All five movements develop

and vary the same thematic material, and

thus movements can be said to correspond

to one of the phases (exposition, development,

recapitulation) of a single sonata

movement.

Liszt dedicated his B-minor sonata

to Schumann, and may have seen it as a

bridge across the post-Beethoven stylistic

chasm: the musical texture was flashy and

dramatic, but it was contained in a fullydeveloped

sonata structure. If he thought

it would make him the darling of both

camps, he was to be disappointed. When

he played it for an unknown, but obviously

gifted, 20-year-old visitor to Weimar named

Johannes Brahms in 1853, Brahms fell

asleep. Schumann never heard it—he had

suffered his final mental breakdown and

was in a sanitarium by the time it came

out—but Clara, to whom Liszt had dedicated

his Six Transcendental Studies After

Paganini, wrote to Brahms that the sonata

was “really terrible,” complaining, “and now

I’m even expected to thank him for it.”

What probably bored Brahms and irritated

Clara Schumann was what they

would have heard as disjointedness: not so

much a lack of logic in the large-scale development,

but in the smaller phrases of the

music. The occasional emotional eruption,

interruption of an idea or impulsive grab

at impressive pianistic effect, would have

seemed to their ears like a sort of attention

deficit at work. One person’s brilliance is

another’s noise, and musicians with strong

convictions about what music should be

are not likely to be the most open-minded

about it. Time has dulled the controversies.

The established repertoire that Liszt envisaged

exists, and the B-minor sonata is firmly

in it, though it still presents challenges

for both players and listeners.
