    The Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung wrote of this recital by pianist Hélène Grimaud at the Kammer Musiksaal of the Berlin Philharmonie, “She doesn’t only play the piano - she feels it and she lives it. Every single note proves her devotion to perfection ... her unconventional style captivates everyone in the audience.”

    Arguably one of the very top pianists of her generation, her concert career took off in 1987 when she was in her early twenties and she now performs with major orchestras around the world as well as being in demand for recital appearances. The spontaneity of her playing is breathtaking. Not to be afraid of taking risks and always to play as though it is the first time is Hélène Grimaud’s maxim.

    Her program for this recording features Bach’s Chaconne in D minor, Beethoven’s Sonata No. 31 in A flat Op. 110, and Brahms’ Sonata No. 3 in F minor Op. 5. As encores, she plays two of Rachmaninov’s Etudes-tableaux Op. 33.

      je ne suis pas familiarisé avec l'univers musical de JS Bach, mais écouter cette Chaconne et cela avec Hélène Grimaud, c'est un moment de grâce...

      Beautifully performed by Hélène Grimaud! But why is it that in adaptations composers never take the chance to write to the original key? Since A was 415hz in the time of Bach the key should be C# minor instead of D minor which is the actual notation but not the right sound on 440/442 instruments. For pianists it would not make a difference. For string players of course the sound of open strings on which the choice of keys is based: Yes, but than rather play it on a 415 instrument I would say. Try Johannes passion in F# minor and Mattheus in Bb minor. The difference is that of a fairytale or the suffering of Christ where they surely didn't perform 'always look on the bright side of life' .

      1. UWeKMayrIII

        Busoni used dominant A (lowest) on piano. G# would hit the wood...

    4. huszar blasio

      Nice but violin is much better

    5. SteadfastDV

      supreme in every way for me - fittingly awesome sound quality too!

    6. Gabriël Smit

      A god and goddess get together. *** Daring and beautiful playing.

    9. eminpasha123

      As Updike said of Nabokov (another synesthete) Grimaud plays Bach the only way he should be played-ecstatically.

    10. Jerome Mainguet

      Si belle Hélène, si brillante interprète de notre « Père » musical Jean-Sébastien Bach…

    17. morganfisherart

      I love her exhausted look at the end, almost can't bow, has given everything, just wants to collapse in the dressing room with a glass of champagne. A great musician!!!

    18. Marc Twain

      playing bach the strong and easy way of baroque musik, she canmake a orgel with a piano🤐👏🏿♥️

    19. pianosound

      To listen this music and this performance has been a mistic experience. When three genius does meet , Bach, Busoni, and this so young she - pianist which was unknown to me, the results can´t be no other than a trascendental experience.

      1. Henry Gerrits

        But how can Helene Grimaud be unknown to you 😅she is one of the greatest ✌🏻most likely in the top 5 of worlds best female pianists

    20. Gerre Gannaway

      Many thanks to J.S. Bach, Ferruccio Busoni, and Hélène Grimaud. It's a beautiful combination.

    21. Gerardo Yañez


    22. Gerardo Covarrubias

    24. jorge rene romero reyes

      Festejo con mi oído la interpretación de esta pieza musical que no es facil, para empezar se requiere muy buena memoria, y un dominio de rímica en dos notas, tres notas, cuatro notas, sin perder la ritmica, la interprete toca perfecto, me encantó, felicitaciones desde Quito Ecuador.

    25. Sonia Riou

      Tout simplement génial !!!! Merci madame Grimaud.

    26. marie france delagnes

      Magnifique quel talent

    27. Gisela Ripota-Harhaus

      I can't express with words what a treasure this piece of music is for me and also : how purely and egolessly and incredibly deeply this venerable Lady Grimaux is presenting it . Thaaaank youuuuu!!!! I was in awe from the beginning to the end !!!

    28. Clara Nimmer

      She dives deep into this music to lift hidden treasures. Seeing her create this piece again is breathtaking. Sometimes I magically heard an organ.

    29. Andrea Rodigari

      Eccezzionale Helene!

    30. Veroniquee Fournier

      magnifique !!!

    31. athanasiusjames1

      Beyond description!!! Bravo!!!

    34. Quantum Math

      The very fact that classical music has survived so many centuries is fascinating and inspiring. What a great piece and a great performance.

    35. Libertas Capitur

      Una vez más, Helene tomando nuestra alma en sus delicadas manos y mostrándonos que no tenemos más alternativa que amarla por haber escogido el camino del arte en su valiosa vida, en que derrama amor musical en cada caricia de sus dedos al piano... y como si fuera poco, nos regala de postre lla mirada dulce y franca de sus ojos de niña. Libercapitum

    36. زمزمه بهشتی

      One of the sexiest and hottest pianists in history !

      Merci pour votre donation, pour les moments moments merveilleux.

    39. Jean-Paul Morel

      Je n'aime pas la transcription qu'a fait Busoni de la Chaconne qui est beaucoup plus une sorte de méditation intime dans l'esprit de JSB qu'un torrent de virtuosité à la Lizt ceci dit Hélène Grimaud est une bonne interprète...

    40. Astrid McCormick

      So impressive!

    41. Tim Ward

      that long crescendo starting around 10:15 is the most glorious moment of a glorious piece.

      1. Marc Twain

        ba the way, like the Musik of Warning for the great acceleration in ouer time of Klima Kathastrophie

    42. Adriana Mitre

    43. Gunnar Knutsson


    44. Robert Tolck

      Absolument magique! Grande classe!

    45. Mark Seibold

      What a genius interpretation of Bach. It's as if Helene transcends at 3:20 from a more familiar Bach style, forward a couple centuries into the dramatic style of Beethoven. This is spectacular, and I love every second of it. I would be very surprised if she has not been recognized on a worldly and even more popular level to receive a special Grammy for greatest modern interpretation of a classical work by Bach. I could also imagine this score by Helene being adapted to a great cinemagraphic filmwork.

    48. John Peschke

      oh my, genius

    49. Didier Balse

      Qu'elle artiste merveilleuse, dans sa façon de jouer, mais aussi d'être, avec une belle profondeur.

    50. Richard Verkooy

      Bach, Busoni and Grimaud. Superbe!

    51. Mike Vaccaro

      to own Bach/Busoni in such a way is so refreshing. No doubt that Ms. Grimaud hears and creates music in her own unique way. I think that is what Bach always wanted.

    52. RICARDO

      Hermosa interpretación e ejecución and performan of the piano. Only spirit înside

    53. Franco Ebasta

      Ripresa troppo carica di reverberi. E la Grimaud peraltro bravissima con Abbado su Rachmaninov, sembrerebbe che abbia scelto dei tempi d'esecuzione troppo inusuali. Parte troppo lenta, poi prende la rincorsa, e ritornerebbe troppo lenta per dove non si sa'. Bach merita altre esecuzioni migliori. Gould gli potrebbe spiegare ( se potesse ritornare....!), il come ed il dove devono essere eseguite queste celebri partiture.

    54. Stephane Loridan

      Perfection does not exist, but it is what comes closest to it, at all levels.

    55. John Cabrera

      absolutely ferocious and meaningful

    56. S Anderson

      Ganz fabelhaft, wie immer.

    57. Andrés Guzmán

      Levitation 🙏

    58. darren motise

      The Brahms version for left hand is much better than this. More exact transcription. More Bach, less Busoni.

    59. Rogert P

      Grimaud is in the same league as Buniatishvili, Huppmann, Wang, Sheps, Argerich....!! All these UNELIEVABLE talents....sent from the Gods.....

    60. juan carlos uribe

      Gran interpretación, personalmente prefiriria escucharla en clavicembalo que es para lo que fue escrita. Gracias.

    61. Giampaolo Rosa

      Una delle mie pianiste preferite...!!!

    62. Leopoldo F Saldanha

      Fantastic interpretation from o top pianist. Bravo!

    67. guillaume pavard

      Et dieu créa hélène grimaud... Mais pourquoi a t il mis autant de perfection en une seule personne...

    68. Jf Cooz

      À pleurer de beauté. L'ensemble.

    69. JAOB1968

      Must be the most beautiful hands ever

    70. David Jacobson

      She is really, really pretty. But her playing is not. Way too bangy, unattractive sound.

    71. Alessandro Del Monte

      Bravissima, piena padronanza della tecnica, intensa interpretazione. Mi si perdoni il paragone che mi urge ,ma Benedetti Michelangeli è altra cosa. La perfezione. Nella postura , quasi aristovraticamente distaccata, timbro e tocco dei tasti, sonorità divina. Il più grande.

    72. Tomaso Bitto

      La Migliore 👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏❤️

    73. Laura Sosa

      Cuánto respeto y admiración tengo al oír tocar el piano de esa forma. Mil gracias

    74. Safely Anonymous

      those are definitely hands made for playing the piano her upright thin figure is advantageous compared to others. She is a very strong pianist

    75. Armónica de Cristal

      Que hermoso, gracias .

    76. Sahand Kheirkhah

      The depth of her chords is nothing short of rachmaninoff like

    77. Michael D

      Absolutely brilliant recital by Hélène, and as an aside, she just happens to be utterly gorgeous looking too!

      Over compressed recording.

    83. Paulus G.M. Schmidt


    84. Alan Palmiter

      Who had died for Helene? And who would now live eternally? It's her secret and our own revelation - at once.

    85. Lucyna Borowska

      Mogę słuchać bez końca

    86. marchandise alain

      Merci Hélène , c'est fabuleux !!!

    88. José Joel Pimentel de Andrade

      Três fenômenos imbatíveis para esta obra: Bach, Bussoni e Helène Grimiaud. Explosivos, miraculosos, artísticamente sublimes a instantes inigualáveis! Viva Arte! Viva Bach, Bussoni, Helène! Viva! Parabéns humanidade! Parabéns civilização! Posteridade, seja feliz!!!

    89. Gilles Bloch

      Si Bach était là pour l'entendre, des larmes de joie inonderaient son visage, je pense. C'est tellement beau

    90. Annie Blase

      Chère Hélène, de temps en temps j'ai besoin de vous voir jouer. J'ai moi-même travaillé au violon cette Chacone si exceptionnelle à la fin de mon adolescence. Je vous ai vue jouer alors que vous aviez une quinzaine d'années et c'était déja exceptionnel (à Paris près de Beaubourg, au siège de l'IRCAM je crois)! Je vais aussi vous voir jouer une sonate de Brahms car je suis sûre que j'aimerai, je suis ds une période de musique de chambre de ce compositeur . Bravo et excellente progression continue!

    91. Valter Origo

      Maravilha !!!

    92. Michael Arnold

      If Bach could hear Helėne Grimaud, he might just want another 16 children.

    93. Ran Mo


    94. Cecilia Sawicki

      I just close my eyes and dream with this amazing music .

    95. Michela Campo


    96. Ian Wright

      Bach’s spirit is brought back to life by Helene with great beauty.

    97. Mike Woehrle

      Unique... So talented dr W

    98. Simon Ubsdell

      Superb performance. But even a truly great pianist can't manage to make Busoni's hideous, muddy, ungainly bass writing sound anything except unpleasantly wrong.

    99. Amadeus

      Please forgive me Bach !! It's my first time to like the pianist more than your music.

    100. David Roodman

      The problem with this video is that a simple "Like" feels completely inadequate.
