"Fire and ice, passion and reason...Helene Grimaud has attained the artistic maturity of the geats." The young Provencale pianist Helene Grimaud has won international attention for her original musicianship, her spirit and her unique style, all of which was captured in last year's Vogue feature article and CBS Sunday Morning profile. This LP, which features well-loved works of Rachmaninov, proves a showcase for the pianist's exuberant expressivity and virtuosity.
