About the Event
The arrival of Hélène Grimaud and the Camerata Salzburg at the Musikfestspiele is eagerly anticipated, as this beloved duo is bound to gain even more devoted followers through their performance in 2024. The evening commences with Beethoven's "Coriolan" Overture, setting the stage for two captivating romantic works. Schumann's Opus 54 in A‐Minor, often hailed as the quintessential romantic piano concerto due to its orchestral dynamics and chamber‐like transparency, serves as a defining piece for the acclaimed French pianist renowned for her virtuosity and sensitivity. Following this, Mendelssohn's Symphony No. 1 in C‐Minor, a youthful composition dedicated to his dear sister Fanny on her birthday when he was just 15 years old, captivates listeners with its technical challenges and musically appealing character, exuding the exuberance of the composer's youth.
