Notes & Reviews:

The Franlzjiurter Allgemeine Zeitung wrote of this recital by pianist Hélène Grimaud at the Kammer Musiksaal of the Berlin Philharmonie, "She doesn't only play the piano - she feels it and she lives it. Every single note proves her devotion to perfection ... her unconventional style captivates everyone in the audience."

Arguably one of the very top pianists of her generation, her concert career took off in 1987 when she was in her early twenties and she now performs with major orchestras around the world as well as being in demand for recital appearances. The spontaneity of her playing is breathtaking. Not to be afraid of taking risks and always to play as though it is the first time is Hélène Grimaud's maxim.

Her program for this recording features Bach's Chaconne in D minor, Beethoven's Sonata No. 31 in A flat Op. 110, and Brahms' Sonata No. 3 in F minor Op. 5. As encores, she plays two of Rachmaninov's Etudes tableaux Op. 33.
