Event Description

Hélène Grimaud—equal parts agile, independent, and elegant—takes center stage in a crowd-pleasing piano recital that highlights her breathtaking intuition and inventiveness. Experience these multi-faceted talents in a program that sparkles with French miniatures, including Debussy’s bewitching Clair de lune, alongside the sleek minimalism of Satie’s avant-garde Gnossiennes. Hear these and other French gems along with spellbinding Mazurakas and waltzes by piano royalty, Chopin. The program concludes in spectacular fashion with Schumann‘s Kreisleriana, a kaleidoscopic spectrum of shifting moods and colors anchored with extreme virtuosity, and regarded by many (including Schumann) as the composer’s finest composition.
