French pianist Hélène Grimaud brings a virtuosic program to Meany Center performing music from her 2018 recording Memory. In exploring music’s ability to bring the past to life, she stirs profound emotions through the elegant simplicity of miniatures by Frédéric Chopin, Claude Debussy, Erik Satie, and Valentin Silvestrov which, in the pianist’s own words “conjure atmospheres of fragile reflection, a mirage of what was – or what could have been.”

“Music should be so transparent that one can see the bottom and that poetry shimmers through this transparency.” – Valentin Silvestrov
