Notes & Reviews:

The first-ever concert DVD of pianist Helene Grimaud in collaboration with conducting legend Claudio Abbado captures an unforgettable night at the Lucerne Festival 2008! The all-Russian program extends from Tchaikovsky's romantic lushness to Rachmaninoff's dramatics to the astringent musical tonic that is uniquely Stravinsky's. Grimaud and Abbado propound poetic and impactful interpretations through the recreative power of sterling musicianship with this unforgettable performance.
