On her upcoming US tour that includes three dates in Houston, TX (November 19, 20, 21), two in Seattle, WA (December 2 & 4), and two in Naples, FL (December 9 & 11) Hélène performs one of the greatest of all French masterworks, Ravel’s jazz-infused Concerto in G. From the opening whip crack to the mesmerizing second movement and a jaunty whirlwind of a finale, this is piano virtuosity at its most colorful and captivating. The tour concludes on January 9, 2022 with a recital featuring works by Frédéric Chopin, Claude Debussy, Valentin Silvestrov, and Erik Satie at San Francisco’s Davies Symphony Hall.
On Sunday, November 7, Palm Beach Symphony will open its 48th season at the Kravis Center with Music Director Gerard Schwarz at the podium and Hélène joining for Schumann’s Piano Concerto in A minor.
“Hélène is one of the greatest pianists in the world today,” Maestro Schwarz said. “We have performed the Schumann Piano Concerto together numerous times, and she has a special command over the piece. I’ve known her since she was in her early career, and I admire her passionate and expressive playing.”
