  • Johannes Brahms: Piano Concerto No.2 In B Flat, Op.83, 4. Allegretto grazioso - Un poco più presto

    Hélène Grimaud, Wiener Philharmoniker, Andris Nelsons

    Listen to Hélène Grimaud playing the fourth movement from Brahms' Piano Concerto No. 2. "If many people prefer the Second, that's perhaps because of its intensity of expression. It looks at what life has been, what it is and what it could have been. There's a kind of nostalgia there, as well as a slightly bitter strain of tenderness", explains Grimaud.

    The album will include thrilling, deeply personal interpretations of the dark, passionate sound-worlds of both Brahms piano concertos: Piano Concerto No.1 and Piano Concerto No.2.

    The 2nd Piano Concerto marks Grimaud's debut recording with the celebrated Wiener Philharmoniker - coupled with the equally coveted Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks for the 1st Concerto, Grimaud has discovered exemplary musical counterparts.

    The album is released worldwide this September:
