During his brief, but sensational career to date, Benjamin has received Gramophone’s ‘Young Artist of the Year and ‘Instrumental Award’, a Classic Brits ‘Critics’ Award’, UK ‘Critics’ Circle Award’ for Exceptional Young Talent and a Diapason d’Or ‘Jeune Talent’ Award. He has been featured in two BBC television documentaries, BBC Breakfast, The Andrew Marr Show and CNN’s Human to Hero series.

The youngest of five brothers, Benjamin began playing the piano aged 6. In July 2012, he graduated from the Royal Academy of Music, where he was awarded the ‘The Queen’s commendation for excellence’.
