the wild ones

A review from a reviewer who I generally find a disappointment of Helene Grimaud's recent Carnegie Hall appearance. You can read it here.

You can read a really wonderful profile of Grimaud and her devotion to the wild things here. She really is in my estimation one of the great beings who also happen to be great pianists.

IF you haven't already got your hands on it, run, don't walk, to the book store to pick up her "Wild Variations". The recent English translation of her autobiography. Or even better pick up a copy of her Brahms CD. Transcendent.
