Notes & Reviews:

Helene Grimaud is back and presenting a new solo recital program, which she will take on a world-wide tour during the upcoming concert season. Her new album 'Resonance', reflects Grimaud's imaginative approach to this stimulating compilation of masterpieces. Grimaud brings all her artistic maturity and a perfect balance between intellect and emotion to bear on highly dramatic sonatas by Mozart - the A minor K. 310 - Liszt and Berg, followed by Bartok's irresistible Romanian Folk Dances.

“The best is Bartók’s Romanian Folk Dances - a pungent coda.” -The Times

“Mozart's A minor Sonata comes through the Grimaud experience much the best. Her booklet interview gives an intriguing view of the composer...and her way of bringing out the music's dramatic, pre-Beethoven manner convinces strongly...In Liszt's Sonata she deloys her technical command with total fearlessness” - BBC Music

“This richly varied selection of works...opens with probably the most powerful of Mozart's two minor-key sonatas and Grimaud's interpretation is suitably involved and full-blooded...Her ardour and romanticism are entirely suited to the Berg and Liszt Sonatas: the technical challenges are effortlessly overcome and the tonal architecture is clearly paramount.” - International Record Review
