About

As part of a concert series in Paris at the Salle Pleyel and the Cité de la musique, Hélène Grimaud plays once again with the Kammerorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks.

In 2008, Hélène Grimaud recorded a highly acclaimed album entirely dedicated to Bach, and most notably his Concerto BWV 1052. "Why does Bach music touches everyone and speaks to everyone?" the pianist wondered, while trying to discover the secret of his music's universal power. "Bach is the Bible," she explained in 2008 to a journalist of L'Express, "I know it since my childhood, when I started playing his works every day, like so many other pianists. Except for Shakespeare, no artist has been able to bring out such deep and intimate emotions like he did. Bach offers something that helps us getting closer to what is true in life, as if his music was the music conscience itself, its reassurance and its promise."
