Hélène Grimaud conducts and interprets Mozart and Schumann


Stream is available until 4/13/2022 8:00 PM (GMT+2)

 

Hélène Grimaud headlines a spectacular evening with the illustrious Camerata Salzburg at the famed Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg!

Mozart did not write many works in minor tonalities, but those that he did were particularly impactful. They are also the ones that French pianist Hélène Grimaud most enjoys spending time with because they “provide a glimpse behind the mask of jollity that surrounds many of his famous works.” Selecting pieces that are all in minor keys yet composed during intensely creative periods in both Mozart’s and Schumann’s careers, Grimaud takes an insightful look at the composers and their popularity at the time. Grimaud’s performance in the beautiful hall of Hamburg’s Elbphilharmonie is a symbolic representation of an encounter with fate, where drama and tragedy meet, and an apt reminder that not all is as it seems.

Synopsis

Together with photographer Mat Hennek, French star pianist Hélène Grimaud, comes up with a multimedia concert project at the Grand Hall of Hamburg’s Elbphilharmonie. Grimaud’s virtuous piano performance is accompanied by Hennek’s highly praised photo series “Woodlands”, which depicts genuine portraits of trees, Grimaud’s piano recital includes works by romantic and impressionistic composers. They are connected by seven “Transitions”, written exclusively for Grimaud by British composer and DJ Nitin Sawhney. The motives of Hennek’s Woodlands series create an extraordinary visual backdrop, which in combination with Grimaud´s pianistic “impeccable clarity and articulation” (Hamburger Abendblatt) and the Elbphilharmonie’s splendid acoustics grants a concert experience of a special kind.

“Hélène Grimaud turns her thrilling, deeply personal brand of music-making to Brahms’s first and second Piano Concertos. Throughout her playing is sensitive, graceful, and commanding without ever feeling forced,” wrote UK’s Classic FM about Grimaud’s recording of Brahms’ Piano Concertos 1 & 2. The album was released in September 2013 and will be available on vinyl on 6th October 2014.

Revisit this milestone release via a filmed performance of Brahms’ Piano Concerto No. 2 with the NHK Symphony Orchestra and maestro David Zinman in Tokyo’s Suntory Hall (16th January 2013).
