George Benjamin

International influences informed George Benjaminís musical outlook from a young age. Born in London in 1960, he began composing at the age of seven and studied piano and composition during his formative years with the distinguished German musician Peter Gellhorn. Benjamin went on to study during his teens with Olivier Messiaen in Paris and Alexander Goehr in Cambridge.
Wigmore Hallís George Benjamin Day offers a thick slice of the composerís strikingly vivid creative world, spanning everything from his early Sonata for violin and piano and the intricate Shadowlines to a concert performance of his acclaimed chamber opera of 2006, Into the Little Hill.
