After some time at home with her family this summer, Hélène Grimaud returns to the stage in September, opening the 17/18 season in Gothenburg as ‘Artist in Residence’ with the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra. She will perform Ravel’s Piano Concerto in G, conducted by Lionel Bringuier, as well as performing with members of the orchestra in a chamber concert.

In October she joins the Lucerne Symphony Orchestra and James Gaffigan playing Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No.4 and will present the multimedia concert project “Woodlands and Beyond…”, a collaboration with Mat Hennek which was premiered in Hamburg last season, in Lucerne, Paris and Ludwigshafen. Hélène’s autumn period closes with further performances of Beehthoven’s Piano Concerto No.4 with the Kammerorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks and the Gewandhaus Orchester.

PERSPECTIVES / The Art of Hélène Grimaud

New album “Perspectives”

cover

The word ‘perspective’ has a Latin root that means ‘to look through’. It is a word that readily applies to Hélène Grimaud’s way of making music and conceiving programs. She never plays a piece simply for the sake of playing it. She ‘looks through’ a composition, scrutinizing its components, its implications, its ambiguities, its position within that particular composer’s output, its commonalities with other like-minded works, and its tactile, spiritual and emotional resonances. For Grimaud, this collection is a retrospective offering new perspectives through a very personal choice of repertoire which creates enlightening new echoes between works. From Bach to Rachmaninov, Mozart to Chopin, Grimaud’s own selection of highlights from her albums reflects her artistic journey through the piano’s most famous solo and concerto repertoire in a series of interpretations that never fail to offer new perspectives on even the most familiar music – released April 7th!
