EFG International

In the UK, EFG is the principal partner of Southbank Sinfonia, an orchestra that provides a springboard into the music profession for talented young players. It also supports the Young British Soloists' Competition, organised by the Orchid Music Charitable Trust.

In 2013, EFG established a relationship with Benjamin Grosvenor, winner of the Gramophone Young Artist of the Year Award 2012. This is designed to assist the pianist in the development of his international career for at least the next three years.

Benjamin's is an extraordinary talent that has been recognised around the world. He has achieved much in a short space of time, and there is much more to come as he continues his remarkable musical journey.

EFG also supports a range of events in conjunction with Gramophone magazine, including the prestigious Gramophone Classical Music Awards.
