Hélène Grimaud

Riding the wave of her wildly innovative tears become… streams become… at the Park Avenue Armory and subsequent world tour, 2015 Artist-in-Residence Hélène Grimaud brings a hauntingly powerful program of eau-themed favorites to our warm summer stage.

“This selection of music is not meant to be a bibliographical juxtaposition of all pieces for piano ever to bear a title having to do with the theme of water,” said Grimaud. “Were that to be the case, I would of course present quite a few additional works by Liszt, Ravel and Debussy to name only the most obvious. Most of the 20th century pieces seem to focus more on the colourful, decorative, atmospheric and poetic nature of water. To complete the range of expressive possibilities, a return to the source (no pun intended) seemed inevitable.”
