“Nature is the origin of everything” – French pianist Hélène Grimaud is a firm believer of this. Together with her partner, photographer Mat Hennek, she performs a multimedia concert project with works by Romantic and Impressionist composers at the Grand Hall of Hamburg’s Elbphilharmonie. Her virtuous piano performance is accompanied by Hennek’s impressive photo series “Woodlands”.
Hélène Grimaud explains more about her “Pictures” project: “‘Woodlands’ contains all the symbols of German Romanticism – what I consider to be the basis and precondition of the Romantic movement. I find it especially interesting to read how many composers derived inspiration from walks in the forest. For me, nature is proof of spirituality. And music forges a link to the spiritual realm. What could be more logical, then, than to combine these two levels, creating a spacial atmosphere that appeals to the audience in more than one dimension?”
