2 CD compilation featuring highlights from Grimaud’s DG recordings – which have done over 1 million adjusted units and nearly 9,6 mio € in revenue so far – developed in close collaboration with the artist. One album is devoted to solo pieces, the other one to concerto movements. For each successive Deutsche Grammophon release to date, Grimaud has created carefully considered (and occasionally provocative) contexts. For Hélène, this collection is a retrospective offering new perspectives through a very personal choice of repertoire which creates enlightening new echoes between works. From Bach to Rachmaninov, Mozart to Chopin, Hélène Grimaud’s own selection of highlights from her albums reflects her artistic journey through the piano’s most famous solo and concerto repertoire in a series of interpretations that never fail to offer new perspectives on even the most familiar music. “Perspectives” offers the very best of Grimaud’s recordings so far with a broad mainstream appeal. “Perspectives” features new pictures of Grimaud as a child and teenager, while others focus on her very special relationship with nature and animals, thus painting a complete portrait of the artist.
