Classical MPR celebrates 50th anniversary with Saint Paul Sunday and Helene Grimaud

Bookmark and Share

As part of Classical MPR's 50th anniversary we'll celebrate one of public radio's most popular programs - Saint Paul Sunday. Over the next few months, we're continuing to air our top 10 "Saint Paul Sunday" programs, hosted by Bill McLaughlin, every Tuesday night at 7 p.m. on Classical MPR. This week, we'll share a program from 2003 with pianist Hélène Grimaud, recorded at the concert hall of the American Academy of Arts and Letters in New York. On the program: selections by Brahms, Corigliano, and Rachmaninoff. Grimaud's challenging, eloquent artistry runs throughout her new recording - Perspectives, a personal selection of highlights from her Deutsche Grammophon catalog that offers a strong flavor of the pianist's penetrating insights into landmarks of her instrument's repertoire.
