Hélène Grimaud

Encounter with destiny

30 March 2022, Elbphilharmonie, Great Hall

When the French pianist Hélène Grimaud enters the stage, steps onto the concert grand with gentle steps and then places her fingers on the black and white keys in deep communion, this ceremonial alone captivates the audience. Her enormous charisma and sensuality focus the tension and anticipation in the concert hall for an extraordinary evening. The eye is drawn to the programme: Mozart. No less than two of his works composed in a minor key. "I found this interesting because these pieces allow a glimpse behind the mask of cheerfulness that surrounds many of his well-known works. For me, these pieces are emblematic of encounters with fate - and yes, there is something dramatic, tragic about that" says Grimaud. As promised, she describes on this evening alongside the Camerata Salzburg, known for its typical "Mozart sound", a soundscape that could not be less appropriate to the time. Following the conviction that classical music is most intense when experienced in a room together with an audience.
