Tonight, Sunday June 4 at 8p ET on WCRB: Boston, in an encore broadcast of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, Hélène Grimaud is the soloist in the Brahms - Piano Concerto No. 1, and Andris Nelsons conducts Brahms - Symphony No. 2.

With inimitable passion and spiritual dedication, Grimaud climbed the Mount Everest of the romantic piano repertoire, performing The Brahms No. 1 and No. 2 Piano Concertos with Nelsons conducting her 2013 dual disc on Deutsche Grammophon. Believed to be the first woman pianist of the 21st century to release both the Brahms piano concertos, Grimaud recorded the Brahms Piano Concerto No. 1 in D minor, op. 15 live with the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks (Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra) at Munich's Herkulessaal; and the Piano Concerto No. 2 in B-flat major, op. 83 with the Wiener Philharmoniker (Vienna Philharmonic) in Vienna's legendary Musikverein.  It is Grimaud's first recording with the Vienna Philharmonic.
