Joseph Giunta, conducting Benjamin Grosvenor, piano BERLIOZ Roman Carnival Overture DEBUSSY Prélude à l’après-midi d’un faune (Afternoon of a Faun) SAINT-SAËNS Piano Concerto No. 2 in G Minor BRAHMS Symphony No. 1 in C Minor At just 20 years old, pianist Benjamin Grosvenor has already electrified the music world with his spell-binding performances. In 2011, The Daily Telegraph named him one of the “Top 10 Britons of the Year,” and he became Gramophone’s youngest ever double-award winner. He makes his Des Moines Symphony debut with Saint- Saëns’ exquisite G Minor Concerto, a glistening, energetic work with no “slow” movement. That, and Joseph Giunta concludes his 25th Anniversary Season with his favorite Brahms symphony.
