We announce the release of the extended version of Hélène Grimaud’s The Messenger, which is a creation of a pianistic dialogue between Mozart and the Ukrainian-born contemporary composer Valentin Silvestrov.

In times of uncertainty, humanity will often seek paths of least resistance. I believe, however, our time needs, as Rimbaud called it, a ‘more intense music’, conveying the introspection and effort to create a space to live in truth, a time to love beyond the many current miseries, and to strive for greater harmony with each other – and our planet.

“If nothing else, Mozart, Beethoven and Silvestrov can help remind us of the mellifluous beauty of harmony – and that we always have the possibility to modulate.” – Hélène Grimaud

The extended version features a previously unreleased recording of Silvestrov’s 3 Bagatelles. Op.1: III. Moderato and is released today, 16 July 2021 for download and streaming, including in Dolby Atmos.
