Hélène Grimaud, piano

 

French pianist Hélène Grimaud explores the universal nature of memory and its place in the lives of all of us through this recital program, which comes from her most recent recording, Memory.

Memory and music make perfect partners. Both are fleeting, never fixed, always subject to interpretation. Our identities are formed from memories, just as so many of our most enduring experiences are rooted in music. Grimaud’s program comprises a selection of evanescent miniatures by Chopin, Debussy, Satie, and Ukrainian composer Valentyn Sylvestrov that unlock powerful moods, feelings, and sensations. “Music can help remind us that for all in our daily lives that is trivial, there’s a place where meaning is stored…And the capacity to reflect and remember that is the wonder of being alive,” says Grimaud. Like her previous recording, Water, Memory explores another condition of life all too easily taken for granted until it begins to disappear.
