About this Performance

French pianist Hélène Grimaud has earned honors and praise throughout her career for, among other things, her deft interpretation of Beethoven. The New York Times said her performance of the composer’s Fourth Concerto was “deeply affecting” and “traveled an enormous arc from the first hesitant chords to the painful vulnerability of the slow movement to the boisterous triumph of the finale.” Ryan Bancroft leads Pulitzer-winner Caroline Shaw’s enthralling Entr'acte as well as the many moods of Edward Elgar’s musical puzzle. Enigma Variations transforms its central theme into a personality sketch of Elgar’s friends, ranging from playful or eccentric to majestic and noble in the beloved “Nimrod.”
