Helene Grimaud with BSO, at their best with Brahms / MassLive

Bookmark and Share

On Saturday at Boston's Symphony Hall, pianist Helene Grimaud and the Boston Symphony Orchestra hit the bullseye. These amazing musicians gave a concert for the ages featuring Brahms and a new composition by Eric Nathan under the direction of conductor Andris Nelsons. Maybe it was the music. Maybe it was their passionate performances. Maybe it's because this week's and next week's concerts featuring Brahms music are being recorded for potential release on the BSO's recording label, BSO Classics. Maybe it was because of some magical, mystical forces floating through the air of Symphony Hall. All I know is Saturday's concert ranks up there as one of the most memorable and pleasurable performances I have ever attended.(Photo by Winslow Townson )
