Water by Nitin Sawhney( )

21 editions published in 2016 in 3 languages and held by 668 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the world's most celebrated pianists, renowned for the emotional intensity of her interpretations, 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. Inspired by & recorded live at the Douglas Gordon installation "tears become... streams become," featuring an immense field of water that harnesses light, reflection, music and sound, to amplify and transform the Wade Thompson Drill Hall at the Park Avenue Armory in New York. 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, DJ, multi-instrumentalist, orchestral composer and cultural pioneer. Reaffirming her role as one of classical music's most captivating performers, combined with her sense of commitment to the ecological and humanitarian challenges of our day, this project underscores Grimaud's contention that, "there are two significant measures of a society: how we support culture and how we treat our environment."" --
