"...a composer who was always prepared to stand the world on its head"
MUSIC AND WOLVES       BEETHOVEN concerto no. 5      on BEETHOVEN        DISCOGRAPHY        CALENDAR


In this video clip which opens with an excerpt from the triumphant third movement of Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 5,  Hélène Grimaud eloquently communicates her deep affinity for Beethoven and the intricate thought process that circumscribes her interpretation of his music, and from which she ultimately comes away all the wiser as an artist and a human being - with a greater degree of self-knowledge and awareness of the world.  Thus a great piano concerto such as the "Emperor" becomes for her an "incredible teacher," from which she learns incredibly life-sustaining lessons that make her both an extraordinary artist and a "philosopher at the piano."
