Helene Grimaud: Pianist plays in a Disco

img  Tobias

While no exact details have been given on the programe Helene Grimaud will perform, there is a great likelihood that she will concentrate on the repertoire of her current CD. “Beethoven: Piano Concerto No. 5; Piano Sonata No.28 in A, Op.101” was released in September and also searches for points of contact of Beethoven with the time we live in today. “What makes Beethoven such as modern composer”, Helene Grimaud says, “is this incredible vitality, this desire never to give up and, of course, always the philosophical dimension of Beethoven’s music”. Which should make for an intruiging proposition as she enters the stage on October 8th at around nine o clock.

Yellow Lounge is a project by classical label Deutsche Grammophon, who also presents Helene Grimaud’s works. It has been connected to the “Cookies since the earliest days of the “Yellow Lounge”. Next to the live events, there are also CD releases, the last one of which has been curated by flamboyant Rock artist Ruphus Wainwright.
