    Wonderful insights

    The analysis of the career of Hélène Grimaud really stuck out and gave me a thrilling insight into the subtle ripples in the classical world that some feel as tidal waves to some. Conservative musicians fascinate me and their religious instincts and guarded observance of their masters' works are amusing and at times worrying. Artists like Hélène Grimaud could bridge the gap for younger generations to explore the rich history of Western classical music and see the exciting creative opportunities inside an (at times) tightly wound musical framework.
