Beethoven Piano Concerto No. 4 in G major

       Hélène Grimaud--piano soloist with the London Philharmonic Orchestra

The New York Times summarizes Ms Grimaud's performance of Beethoven's Piano Concerto
"...the exquisite French pianist Hélène Grimaud imbued Beethoven's concerto with profound humanity and compassion...Ms Grimaud's deeply affecting rendition of the piano concerto traveled an enormous arc from the first hesitant chords to the painful vulnerability of the slow movement to the boisterous triumph of the finale."
