Listening to  Hélène Grimaud on Radio3.

Petroc Trelawney was in conversation with her on the programme In Tune.

It was interesting to hear her thoughts and her approach to the big daddy of all composers, Johann Sebastian Bach.

Her new album, on Deutsche Grammophon, is called, simply, Bach.

Her are its contents:

BACH
The Well-tempered Clavier (Selection)
Transcriptions of Partita for Violin no. 3 BWV 1006
Prelude and Fugue BWV 543 · Chaconne in D minor BWV 1004
Concerto for Harpsichord, Strings and Continuo no.1 BWV 1052

HÉLÈNE GRIMAUD · Kammerphilharmonie Bremen

Her insights on Bach were really quite interesting.
