From her point of view, most of the great composers were "pretty crazy", pianist Hélène Grimaud once said in an interview with the "Süddeutsche Zeitung". "Listen to Beethoven! If you want to play Beethoven beautifully or as light and easy as popcorn, you destroy his music". Now she teams up with Paavo Järvi for Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 4, who doesn't think much of musical popcorn either. Nor in the rest of the programme: Shostakovich's Symphony No. 5, ostensibly composed entirely according to Stalin's specifications, is probably one of the most ambiguous works ever written.
