Hélène Grimaud Plays Silvestrov and Mozart with Wild Up

Presented by The Soraya

Hélène Grimaud

French pianist Hélène Grimaud celebrates contemporary Ukrainian composer Valentyn Silvestrov, pairing his music with none other than Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. The restless and revered pianist has dominated classical music for three decades, not only with her dazzling performances, but for her many other passions as well, including wildlife conservation and the wolf sanctuary she founded. She will join forces with Soraya favorite Christopher Rountree and his ensemble Wild Up for this one-of-a-kind musical pairing. Beginning with Mozart’s dark and stormy Piano Concerto in D Minor, the concert transitions into Silvestrov’s The Messenger that offers both a response to, and an echo of Mozart’s music. Grimaud will also perform Silvestrov’s Two Dialogues with Postscript with its echoes of both Schubert and Wagner.
