Fall Arts

The Seattle Times previews the autumn concert line up which includes a recital by Hélène Grimaud at the Meany Theatre on 1 November performing Mozart, Berg, Liszt and Bartok.

Hélène Grimaud will also appear in recital at Los Angeles’ Walt Disney Hall on 7 November.

Fall Arts: Classical MusicBig changes are afoot at the Seattle Symphony, where music director Ludovic Morlot starts his second season exemplifying the orchestra's new motto: "Listen boldly." Launched by an all-American "Opening Night Concert and Gala" (featuring stellar violinist Joshua Bell with Morlot conducting) on Sept. 15, the orchestra's 2012-13 season proceeds with a colorful spectacular Sept. 20-22 offering Respighi's "Pines of Rome." Cello fans won't want to miss brilliant principal cellist Efe Baltacigil in Tchaikovsky's "Rococo Variations" Oct. 4-7, and then there's thought-provoking pianist András Schiff in an all-Bach recital Oct. 15 and the incomparable Emanuel Ax playing the Brahms Second Piano Concerto with the orchestra Nov. 15-18. (And 2012-13 also says farewell to two well-loved SSO series, the Visiting Orchestras and Symphony Specials.) Also for ivory fanciers: Hélène Grimaud, the French pianist known for her musical intelligence and crystalline technique, returns to Meany Theater for a Nov. 1 President's Piano Series recital spanning Mozart and Alban Berg.
