French pianist Hélène Grimaud enjoys a busy and varied career on the world’s concert stages as an orchestral soloist, a chamber music partner, and a solo recitalist. Her combination of sheer strength and power tempered by her interpretive subtlety and technical control makes her an impressive pianist in any setting.
Grimaud’s Boston-area recital debut shows off her expressive skills and technical control: the many moods and the brilliant variations heard in Beethoven’s Piano Sonata No. 30, the colors and soulfulness of Brahms’ late piano works, the pyrotechnics of Busoni’s transcription of Bach’s Chaconne.
Ludwig van Beethoven | Piano Sonata No. 30, Op. 109
Johannes Brahms | Three Intermezzi for piano, Op. 117
Johannes Brahms | Fantasies, Op. 116
J. S. Bach / Ferruccio Busoni | Chaconne from Partita No. 2 in D minor, BWV 1004
