Orchestre de Paris / Harding

Hélène Grimaud - Schumann, Bruckner
Grande salle Pierre Boulez - Philharmonie
Duration: about 1h55 with 1 intermission


Robert Schumann
Concerto pour piano
Anton Bruckner
Symphonie n° 7


Orchestre de Paris
Daniel Harding , conducting
Hélène Grimaud , piano

Two scores at the height of Romanticism, both of which were triumphs at the time of their premiere, performed together during an exceptional evening.

Superbly inspired, Schumann's Concerto is like a poem for orchestra with piano necessarily included, in which the natural lyricism, imposing itself as a flow, is born of a permanent fusion between the orchestra and the soloist. Premiered by Clara Schumann in 1845, it immediately won the public's favour with its three perfectly balanced movements, in which melodic effusion vies with chamber colours and conquering vigour. 

In 1884, Bruckner enjoyed one of the rare public successes of his career with his Symphony No. 7, later used by Visconti in Senso. Rigour of form, recourse to learned counterpoint, majestic sound textures and liturgical solemnity make this the most typically Brucknerian of scores. The famous Adagio is undoubtedly one of the composer's most beautiful works, in which the low strings and tubas intone a desolate theme, the musical "tomb" of the master Richard Wagner.
