Notes and Editorial Reviews

Hélène Grimaud for the first time in her career brings together French piano favourites from Satie, Debussy and combines them with Chopin, Rachmaninov's Vocalise, a piece by the Ukrainian composer Valentin Silvestrov, as well as a brand-new piano version of "Breathing Light", one of Hélène 's favourite piece by her musical friend and collaborator composer/performer/producer Nitin Sawhney.

“I think of the album as a sequence of crystalline miniatures capturing time” – Hélène Grimaud
