BENJAMIN

GROSVENOR

British pianist Benjamin Grosvenor is internationally

recognised for his electrifying

performances, distinctive sound and

insightful interpretations. His virtuosic command

over the most arduous technical

complexities underpins the remarkable

depth and understanding of his music-making.

Described as “one in a million…several

million” by The Independent.

A pianist of widespread international

acclaim, in the 21/22 season he is Artistin-Residence

at the prestigious Wigmore

Hall in London with three varying projects.

The previous season he was Artist-in-

Residence at both Radio France and with

the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra.

His “astounding technical gifts, the freshness

of his imagination, his intense concentration,

the absence of any kind of

show, and the unmistakable sense of poetic

immersion directed solely at the realization

of music” have been lauded by

Süddeutsche Zeitung.

Recent and forthcoming concerto

highlights of the 21/22 season include engagements

with the Chicago, Baltimore

and Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestras, Philharmonia

Orchestra, Scottish Chamber,

Hamburg Staatsorchester and City of Birmingham

Symphony Orchestra. Benjamin

works with such esteemed conductors as

Semyon Bychkov, Riccardo Chailly, Sir Mark

Elder, Kent Nagano, Alan Gilbert, Manfred

Honeck, Vladimir Jurowski, François-Xavier

Roth and Esa‐Pekka Salonen.

In recital this coming season Benjamin

looks forward to returning to Théâtre des

Champs Elysées Paris, Munich’s Herkulessaal,

Konzerthaus Berlin and Palau de la

Música Catalana, Barcelona. He also undertakes

an extensive U.S. recital tour including

appearances with Philadelphia Chamber

Music Society and People’s Symphony

NYC. He has also performed at the ‘Chopin

and his Europe’ Festival in Warsaw, Montpellier

Festival, Barbican Centre, Southbank

Centre, Washington’s Kennedy Center, New

York’s Carnegie Hall and 92nd Street Y. A

keen chamber musician, regular collaborators

include Hyeyoon Park, Tabea Zimmermann,

Timothy Ridout, Benedict Kloeckner,

Kian Soltani and Doric String Quartet. Benjamin

is Co-Artistic Director of the Bromley

and Beckenham International Music Festival,

a unique and vibrant event for the local

community which was born out of the desire

to reconnect with the public during the

COVID‐19 pandemic.

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. Released

in 2020, his second concerto album featuring

Chopin’s piano concertos, recorded with

the Royal Scottish National Orchestra under

the baton of Elim Chan, received both the

Gramophone Concerto Award and a Diapason

d’Or de L’Année, with Diapason’s critic

declaring that the recording is “a version to

rank among the best, and confirmation of

an extraordinary artist.” The renewal of the

Decca recording partnership in early 2021

coincided with the release of Benjamin’s latest

album, Liszt, centered around the composer’s

Sonata in B minor.

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. In 2016, he

became the inaugural recipient of The Ronnie

and Lawrence Ackman Classical Piano

Prize with the New York Philharmonic.

Benjamin first came to prominence as

the outstanding winner of the Keyboard

Final of the 2004 BBC Young Musician

Competition, and he was invited to perform

with the BBC Symphony Orchestra at the

First Night of the 2011 BBC Proms. The

youngest of five brothers, Benjamin began

playing piano at age 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 is an Ambassador of Music

Masters, a charity dedicated to making

music education accessible to all children

regardless of their background, championing

diversity and inclusion.

8 CAMA'S 103 RD CONCERT SEASON


NOTES ON THE PROGRAM

By Howard Posner

César Franck was raised to be a concertizing

piano virtuoso by a relentlessly pushy

father who was determined to make him

the next Liszt, and nearly succeeded.

Franck’s early compositions consist largely

of piano music written to show off his own

ability. But when he reached his mid‐twenties,

Franck broke with his father, moved

out of his parents’ house, married a woman

they disapproved of, and took a job as

a church organist, a musical profession at

the opposite end of the universe from that

of the touring piano virtuoso, and one he

would maintain the rest of his life. The piano

scarcely appears in the music he wrote

between 1846 and 1883: he may have

doubted whether he could make the piano

a medium for serious music, or associated

it with being under his father’s thumb.

But by 1884, when Franck had been a

professor of organ at the Paris Conservatory

for 12 years and his father had been dead

for 13, Franck turned back to the piano like

someone reconnecting with an old flame

many years after a bad breakup.

The Prelude, Chorale and Fugue from

that year is often cited as an example of

Franck’s use of “cyclical” elements, which

César Franck, ©New York Public Library

Creative Commons CC0 1.0 Universal Public Domain Dedication

is a way of saying he used themes from a

work’s earlier movements in its later movements.

It may be just as useful to think of

the Prelude, Chorale and Fugue as a work

in one movement (it has four sections

that are played without a break) in which

themes get developed and recapitulated in

quasi‐sonata style.

The Prelude, like a sonata exposition,

presents three themes (the second

of which—the one that appears when all

the rippling and cascading stops—is a

three‐note motif that foreshadows the

Fugue’s subject). It leads into the Chorale

with an unsettling harmonic surprise (a B

dominant seventh chord, which your ear

will expect to resolve to E major even if

you have no idea what “dominant seventh”

means, instead resolves to E flat) which

is a way of signaling that, as Hermione

Granger once put it, “Everything’s going to

change now.”

The Chorale is at once brooding, mysterious

and tender, and has little in common

with the foursquare Lutheran congregation­

Robert Schumann (1850)

Johann Anton Völlner photo, Hamburg

al hymn normally associated with the word.

It leads into a transitional section that introduces

a motif that will become the fugue

subject. Franck marked the section “poco

allegro” but gave it no title; perhaps he

thought “Prelude, Chorale, another Prelude,

and Fugue” would sound stupid. The Fugue

begins as something that could almost

pass for one of Bach’s more chromatic

fugues, but turns into a giant recapitulation

as the Chorale returns in the texture of the

Prelude’s cascades.

The work was premiered in Paris by

Marie Poitevin, a rising pianistic star, in

January 1885 to good reviews for her and

Franck. But there were naysayers. Camille

Saint‐Saëns famously remarked that it

was “anything but pleasant or convenient

to play, where the chorale is not a chorale

nor the fugue a fugue.” He was not entirely

wrong in this, or even in saying that the

fugue “continues in interminable digressions

which no more resemble a fugue

than an invertebrate resembles a mammal.”

Saint‐Saëns was inadvertently pointing out

the obvious: that Franck was pushing the

limits of traditional form and refusing to be

bound by categories.

In Kreisleriana, Robert Schumann’s

creative imagination found fertile ground

in a fictional character of E.T.A. Hoffman

(1776–1822), who himself seems like a fictional

character written by an author unable

to make choices. Hoffman is now known

mostly for his fiction (Offenbach’s Tales

of Hoffman, Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker and

Delibes’ Coppelia are based on his stories)

ut he also had a reputation as a composer

(surviving works include six operas, five piano

sonatas, a symphony and a ballet). He

was an important music critic, celebrated

to this day as the writer who made music

criticism significant. His career included

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 at 56.

The Hoffman character that inspired

Schumann was Johannes Kreisler, a violinist

and music director in three novels:

Kreisleriana (1813), The Musical Sufferings

of the 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 compared to late-

20th‐century postmodernism.

Schumann, himself better known as a

music critic than a composer, must have

seen Hoffman, who died when Schumann

was 12, 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 bipolar.

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 on Schumann’s mind when he

composed Kreisleriana in 1838. There was

also Clara Wieck, the 19‐year‐old daughter

of Schumann’s former piano teacher,

an internationally renowned pianist since

she was 11, a composer of considerable

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 eventually ruled in their favor in

1840, in time for them to wed the day before

Clara turned 21 and no longer needed

parental consent.

While the 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 composed nothing

but piano music during those years.

This had actually been the case all during

the 1830’s, 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 Clara the woman, but

geared to the musical intelligence of Clara

the musician.

“My imagination is never so lively as

CAMA AT THE LOBERO THEATRE • BENJAMIN GROSVENOR

13


when it is anxiously extended toward you,”

he wrote 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 some lesser ones,

such as the Carnival Jest from Vienna that

he sent Clara in Paris after she wrote to ask

him for a “something brilliant and easy to

understand,” that was “written for an audience,”

as opposed to the other cutting‐edge

music he was producing.

He wrote 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

Isaac Albéniz, displayed at the library of

Museu de la Música de Barcelona

movement, for example) abut sections of

great agitation. The music seems to explore

a landscape of bipolar mood swings,

but also a truly savage love.

Isaac Albéniz, like César Franck, was

thrust into a virtuoso career at a young age

by a stage father, and only in adulthood

sought and acquired the skills to write serious

music. He went to Paris in his 30s

to study with Paul Dukas, who was renowned

more as a composition teacher

than as a composer. After an unsatisfying

return to Spain, Albéniz came back to Paris

in 1902, but spent much time in the warmer

climate of Nice because it eased the symptoms

of the kidney disease that would

cause his death in 1909, a few days before

his 49th birthday.

14 CAMA'S 103 RD CONCERT SEASON


In the four years before his death he

composed Iberia, 12 piano pieces in four

“books” of three pieces each, the first of

which premiered in May 1906. They each

evoke a specific part of Spain with local

dance idioms, associations that will be

lost on non‐Spaniards. The very first piece,

called Evocación, conjures up a sort of

A‐to‐Z tour of Spain by using dance idioms

from Navarre, at the French border in the far

north, and Andalusia in the far south.

El Puerto depicts the festival season in

El Puerto de Santa Maria, a city on Andalusia’s

southern Atlantic Coast where the

Guadalete River flows into the Bay of Cadiz.

El Corpus Christi en Sevilla celebrates another

festival, the feast of Corpus Christi,

in which the sanctified communion host is

carried in a procession through the streets

of Seville.

Maurice Ravel’s Jeux d’eau (Literally

“Water Games” or “Fountain”) dates from

his interminable and rather bizarre time

as a student at the Paris Conservatory. He

was admitted in 1889 when he was 14, but

made inadequate progress in the eyes of

the Conservatory administration. He was

dismissed in 1895, readmitted in 1897, and

dismissed again in 1900, but continued to

audit Gabriel Fauré’s composition class

until 1903. He also continued to enter the

Conservatory’s Grand Prix de Rome composition

competition until 1905, submitting

at least one entry that he must have known

would be disqualified for breaking traditional

rules of harmony and voice‐leading.

During this time he became a composer

of some prominence with the Pavane for

a Dead Princess in 1899 and Jeux d’eau in

1901, and was already a significant figure in

the French avant‐garde, so it is unclear why

he continued to try to win a competition

judged by the Conservatory’s very conservative

faculty. The Conservatory’s treatment

of Ravel became a noted scandal, known

as L’Affaire Ravel, which eventually forced

the director to resign. Fauré replaced him.

Ravel wrote, “Jeux d’eau is at the origin

of whatever pianistic innovations my works

may be thought to contain. This piece, inspired

by the noise of water and the musical

sounds emitted by fountains, waterfalls

and streams, is based on two themes, on

the model of a sonata first movement, but

without conforming to the classical plan of

key relations.” The first page bears a dedi­

cation to “My dear teacher Gabriel Fauré,”

and a quotation, “A river god laughing at

the water that tickles him,” from a poem by

Hénri Regnier.

As early as 1906, Ravel conceived of

an orchestral tribute to the Viennese waltz,

which he planned to call Wien, which is what

the Viennese call Vienna. But it remained

just an idea until after World War I, when

Serge Diaghilev, the ballet impresario who

had already commissioned Ravel’s Daphnis

et Chloe, Stravinsky’s Firebird and Rite

of Spring, and scores by Debussy, Richard

Strauss, Prokofiev and de Falla, suggested

that Ravel’s Vienna tribute could be a ballet.

Ravel composed La Valse (after the war

with Austria and Germany, a German title

would have been a bad idea) for orchestra,

then made a two‐piano version so that Diaghilev

could hear it. Francis Poulenc, who

was in the room when Diaghilev listened to

it in 1920, wrote that Diaghilev told Ravel

it was a masterpiece, but not a ballet. “It’s

a portrait of a ballet.” Ravel picked up his

score and calmly left the room, apparently

without speaking, and never forgave Diaghilev.

When they met five years later, Ravel

refused to shake his hand, and Diaghilev

challenged him to a duel. Friends eventually

calmed him down. (Another version of the

incident has Ravel issuing the challenge.)

Ravel wrote, “I had intended this work

to be a kind of apotheosis of the Viennese

waltz, with which was associated in my

imagination with an impression of a fantastic

and fatal kind of Dervish’s dance. I imagined

this waltz being danced in an imperial

palace in about 1855.” The only explicit visual

suggestion is made in a preface to the

score, intended as a ballet stage direction

that refers to letters that are commonly

put into scores so conductors can tell players

where to restart in rehearsal: “Through

whirling clouds can be glimpsed now and

again waltzing couples. The mists gradually

disperse, and at letter A [about a minute

into the piece] a huge ballroom is revealed

filled with a great crowd of whirling dancers.

At the fortissimo at letter B [about another

minute into the piece] the lights in the

chandeliers are full on.”

But the work’s progression from primordial

ooze at the beginning to waltz‐on‐steroids

to a calamitous‐sounding end, coming

just after a war that killed millions and

ended the old regimes of Austria, Germany

and Russia, has led to its being interpreted

as a dark comment on the death of the old

order and its art. Already by 1922, Ravel

complained to an interviewer about how La

Valse had “elicited so much strange commentary.”

He continued to insist that it really

was about Vienna in 1855.

La Valse has been staged as a ballet,

but its real life has been in orchestral

concerts. Ravel’s solo piano arrangement

is full of alternative passages, because it

is impossible to cram the whole work into

ten fingers on one keyboard. Thus at many

points the performer has to choose what

notes to play.

ENGLISH BAROQUE SOLOISTS

Sir John Eliot Gardiner, Music Director

Kati Debretzeni, violin Fanny Paccoud, viola

Almost inexcusably absent from the pantheon of great conductors appearing

in Santa Barbara during CAMA’s long history, Sir John Eliot Gardiner will at last

grace the Granada stage directing the English Baroque Soloists, the preeminent

period-instrument chamber ensemble founded by the maestro himself in 1978.

Arguably the foremost living interpreter of 17th‐ and 18th‐century choral and

orchestral repertoire, Sir John Eliot Gardiner is also the Founder and Director

of the Monteverdi Choir and the Orchestre Révolutionnaire et Romantique.

With these and other ensembles, he has recorded more than 250 albums; among

them are benchmark recordings of the Monteverdi Vespers and Bach B‐minor

Mass, the complete Beethoven symphony cycle on period instruments, and each

and every Bach sacred cantata. In his spare time, the prodigious maestro runs an

organic farm at Springhead near Fontmell Magna in North Dorset.

Haydn: Symphony No.103 in E‐flat Major, “The Drumroll,” H.1/103
