Program

Francois Couperin: Selections from "Pieces de Clavecin"

Maurice Ravel: “Le Tombeau de Couperin”:

J.S. Bach Partita #3 in a minor

L.v. Beethoven Sonata #31 in A-flat major, op. 110

Acclaimed by the press for his “charismatic”, “very individual” and “always gripping” playing, Toronto-born pianist Ben Cruchley was awarded 2nd Prize at the International Telekom Beethoven Competition in Bonn, Germany (2015) and 3rd Prize and the prize for the Best Interpretation of a Major Work of Grieg at the International Grieg Competition in Bergen, Norway (2016). He has appeared in such notable venues as the Konzerthaus in Berlin, the Musikverein in Vienna (Brahms-Saal), Roy Thompson Hall and the Richard Bradshaw Ampitheatre in Toronto, and the Troldsalen in Norway. Recent orchestral appearances include the Beethoven Orchestra Bonn, the Narva Symphony Orchestra in Estonia, and the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra. He studied in Toronto with Marc Durand and Shoko Inoue, in Montreal with Dang Thai Son, and with Benedetto Lupo in Rome.

Ben is distinguished for the breadth of his musical experience. As a chamber musician, he has collaborated with members of the Lucerne Festival Orchestra, the orchestra of the Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia, and the Canadian Opera Company. He has considerable experience as an interpreter of contemporary music, notably as long-term member of the Ensemble Novecento in Rome. In addition to engagements as an improviser and orchestral arranger, he worked on many occasions as assistant conductor and repetiteur at Toronto's Opera Atelier. He attained proficiency on the cello, and, many years ago, even had a fine soprano voice.
