Deluge of top pianists head to Birmingham
“… Another pianist-of-the-moment plays at Symphony Hall on April 12, when Helene Grimaud joins the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra under Jiri Belohlavek in Beethoven’s Emperor Concerto. Grimaud is a commanding soloist, bringing as much commitment to her playing as she does to her campaigning on behalf of conservation and human rights.
Like Stephen Hough, she is a prolific writer on subjects which engage her, and she has received prestigious awards from the French government for her artistic endeavours.”
