A special place for unique encounters: pure nature meets an industrial monument at the Turbine Hall at Lake Stienitz, not far from Berlin. In this space, once filled with the noise of machinery, pianist Hélène Grimaud and the young star baritone Konstantin Krimmel come together to explore that most direct and intimate musical form – the song. The first meeting point for them is the music of Valentin Silvestrov, the Ukrainian composer in whose footsteps Hélène Grimaud has been moving for more than two decades. They perform a selection from his meditative Silent Songs alongside Brahms’s Lieder und Gesänge, Op. 32.
