Aged just 19 Benjamin Grosvenor is one of the youngest pianists to record on the prestigious Decca label.
Benjamin explains his choices for the CD, which features Chopin, Liszt and Ravel and is currently John's CD of the Week.
He draws comparisons between the recording and performing processes, and the excitement of capturing musical moments.
We also find out about the young virtuoso's interests outside of his performing career, his musical inspiration and the enjoyment he gets from performing.
