Luminary French pianist Hélène Grimaud returns to Meany Hall after a decade of appearing in recitals and as soloist with the world’s leading venues and orchestras. A deeply charismatic, expressive, and intelligent performer, Grimaud is one of Deutsche Grammophon’s most imaginative recording artists with a string of highly successful discs. Recipient of numerous awards, she has been appointed “Officier dans l’ordre des Arts et des Lettres” by the French Ministère de la Culture and “Chevalier dans l’Ordre National du Mérite. With this presentation of Hélène Grimaud, we are pleased to join Seattle Art Museum in celebrating their exhibition Elles: Women Artists from the Centre Pompidou, Paris and to be a part of the inaugural French Festival in Seattle.
