Hélène Grimaud Water Limited Vinyl 2LP Set

Overview:
Hélène Grimaud presents a beautiful, haunting call to nature – ‘WATER’ is an evocative, experimental, deeply personal project combining Hélène’s two greatest passions: music and nature. On this release, Hélène performs all water-themed, romantic and contemporary classical pieces by composers such as Liszt, Debussy, Ravel and more, who all shared a fascination for Water. In addition to these traditional evocations of rivers, lakes, seas, snowflakes, and raindrops, the album also reflects a contemporary perspective on water – and the lack thereof. These elements are woven into the album narrative through musical ‘Water – Transitions’ – ambient soundscapes composed, recorded and produced by Nitin Sawhney, a celebrated world-class producer, songwriter and DJ. Both Digipack and LP will feature a bonus track (which is NOT included on the jewelcase), in the style of a spoken track-by-track, where Helene herself has recorded the below “Reflections on Water”, mixed with excerpts of the music. The piece is c. 10min in total.
