Hélène Grimaud, Piano
Jeux d’eau (Waterworks)
as well as works by Liszt, Brahms, Fauré, Debussy and others
Fountains fascinate young and old alike. While the young ones run and play in the fountains, the older ones simply enjoy this kind of water art. But also in the form of snow and ice or mist and fog, water is so important to our blue planet as it exerts a tremendous fascination and evokes emotions. Composers of all eras have been inspired by water to write great works. Franz Liszt, with his highly poetic repertoire of the genre, “Les jeux d 'eau à la Villa d'Este,” wrote a musical work about the fountain of the Villa d'Este, and Maurice Ravel, in the composition of his “Jeux d'eau,” had not only fountains, waterfalls and streams in mind, but also a water-trickled river god. The French-inspired French pianist, Hélène Grimaud, will now dedicate an entire evening to water in all its varieties and with its enormous symbolic power. At the same time, water also reminds us very subtly to protect and preserve this precious resource.
