The residency allows us to bring some of the world’s most exciting soloists to audiences across the South West, through a number of concerts across the season, both in concerto performances alongside our world class orchestra but also in a chamber recital. We are delighted to announce that British pianist Benjamin Grosvenor will be our Artist-in-Residence for the 2020/21 Season and will be performing Chopin’s lively First Piano Concerto with us on Wednesday 9 December.

Previous Artists-in-Residence have included celebrated clarinettist Andreas Ottensamer, violinists extraordinaire Nemanja Radulovic and Augustin Hadelich, German cellist Johannes Moser and amazing pianists Sunwook Kim and Gabriela Montero.

The BSO’s Artist-in-Residence programme is generously supported by Terence and Annette O’Rourke.
