On this release, Hélène performs all water-themed, romantic and contemporary classical pieces by composers such as Liszt, Debussy, Ravel and more, who all shared a fascination for Water. In addition to these traditional evocations of rivers, lakes, seas, snowflakes, and raindrops, the album also reflects a contemporary perspective on water and the lack thereof.

Di ritorno da una prova difficile, la celebre pianista Hélène Grimaud entra in un negozio di antiquariato e trova un piccolo tesoro: una chiave, uno specchio appartenuto a Lewis Carroll, e un manoscritto composto da spartiti e pagine di prosa firmato Karl Würth, pseudonimo di Brahms. È il racconto di un viaggio a Rügen, isola nordica dominata da un silenzio irreale, privo di voci di animali, che esercita sull’autore un fascino colmo di terrore. Hélène trova una serie di similitudini tra il viaggio di Brahms, e l’incontro del compositore con un lupo, e il proprio percorso di ricerca sul destino ecologico del mondo, che l’ha condotta a creare un rifugio per lupi a Salem, NY. Colpita dal carattere «fatale» di tutte quelle coincidenze, anche Hélène decide di ritornare ai suoi lupi, nella città, Salem, che come Rügen è legata alla storia della stregoneria.

This surprising program is a joy through and through. It begins with a 1985 work by John Corigliano (Fantasia on an Ostinato) that uses the slow-movement theme from Beethovens Seventh Symphony and then later flies off into wonderfully emotion-filled directions. Next come Beethovens Tempest sonata, played with just the right drama, and his fabulous Choral Fantasy, op. 80, which is part sonata, part study for the 9th symphony. Pianist Grimaud plays the Fantasy with alternating delicacy and power, and the disc ends with Arvo Parts Credo, scored for piano solo, mixed chorus, and orchestra. This last piece is rich and complex, and in some ways encompasses the previous works emotions and textures; those who think of Part as the quiet, holy minimalist, are in for a treat, and perhaps shock. Grimaud is simply magnificent regardless of the century or style; the beauty of her tone is surpassed only by its expressiveness. Esa Pekka Salonen leads the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra and Choir handsomely. This is a very special disc, a must for your collection.

Le monde de la musique est son monde. Hélène Grimaud est "entrée en musique" comme on entre en religion : avec ferveur, passion. Très tôt, ses parents, décelant une "hyperactivité", l’inscrivent à un cours de musique. C’est le coup de foudre : un monde s’ouvre et s’éclaire. Elle passe entre les mains de Pierre Barbizet, au conservatoire de Marseille, poursuit son apprentissage au conservatoire de Paris (avec une dispense d’âge pour y entrer), enregistre un premier disque consacré à Rachmaninov à 15 ans. Son territoire ? Les romantiques. Mais pas seulement.

Helene Grimaud presents her first-ever Bach recording! Once again, charismatic Helene Grimaud presents an album with an individual concept. Bach vs. Bach Transcribed brings together original keyboard works by the master with works by Bach arranged (transcribed) for the piano by pianist-composers of later generations: Busoni, Liszt & Rachmaninov. This is the first time that Hélène Grimaud has recorded Bach - a challenge for any musician. The repertoire includes the famous Well-Tempered Clavier II and the Concerto no. 1 in D minor, the latter performed with Grimaud's regular collaborators, the Kammerphilharmonie Bremen. Bach "Transcribed" features the Bach/Busoni version of the Chaconne in D minor, the Violin Partita in E major arranged for piano by Rachmaninov, and Liszt's version of the Prelude and Fugue in A minor. A landmark project in Grimaud's successful career, this recording is bound to be a best-seller.

There are all sorts of correspondences, musical and otherwise, that confer unity on this eclectic mix of works. John Corigliano's Fantasia, given a smashing performance by Grimaud that milks every ounce of poetry and mystery from its quieter moments, is based on the Allegretto of Beethoven's Seventh (just as Pärt's Credo quotes Bach). Both Beethoven's Choral Fantasy and Pärt's Credo are written for the unusual combination of piano, chorus, and orchestra, and both in their different ways seek to bring order from chaos (or in musical terms contrast "improvisation" with "composed" music). The odd man out here (conceptually at least) is Beethoven's Tempest Sonata, in which Grimaud finds similar qualities via its supposed inspiration in Shakespeare's eponymous play. In any case, it takes no special pleading to include two works by the same composer, and its inclusion makes for a thoughtful and attractive concept album that not incidentally keeps the focus squarely on Grimaud.

Label: Deutsche Grammophon | DVD Release Date: October 26, 2009

The first-ever concert DVD of pianist Hélène Grimaud in collaboration with conducting legend Claudio Abbado captures an unforgettable night at the Lucerne Festival 2008! The all-Russian program extends from Tchaikovsky's romantic lushness to Rachmaninoff's dramatics to the astringent musical tonic that is uniquely Stravinsky's. Grimaud and Abbado propound poetic and impactful interpretations through the recreative power of sterling musicianship with this unforgettable performance. The Lucerne Festival Orchestra numbers virtuoso instrumentalists from such distinguished entities as the Alban Berg and Hagen Quartets. DVD Extras include a rare Abbado on-camera interview.
