“One of the most prominent artists of his generation.”
The Guardian (UK) on Douglas Gordon

 “Grimaud doesn’t sound like most pianists: she is a rubato artist, a reinventor of phrasings, a taker of chances.” —The New Yorker

Turner Prize-winning artist Douglas Gordon and acclaimed pianist Hélène Grimaud come together to explore the beauty of water, a primal force of nature that can change like the tides and has long been a muse for artists throughout history in a wide array of art forms.

Gordon takes this elemental inspiration to create a large-scale installation utilizing the great expanse of the Wade Thompson Drill Hall, on which Grimaud will perform a program of water-themed works by Debussy, Ravel, Liszt, and others, creating a confluence of live music and visual art that allows audiences to experience this celebrated music in a refreshingly new way. The installation will be open to the public in addition to performance times for further reflection.

Commissioned by Park Avenue Armory; this production is supported in part by the British Council.
