Spend your Valentines' Day afternoon 'between madness and banality' - a classical piano concert with the ever-popular Sarah Hagen and Anne Grimm.
With works by Strauss, Poulenc, Berg, and Weill, the duo will tell stories of love, frustration, hope, insanity, and ridiculousness in numerous languages, including a special Dutch surprise.
On the concert stage, Anne Grimm has toured Europe and recorded regularly with the Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra (Ambronay, Salzburg) as well as with the Nederlandse Bachvereniging, the Amsterdamse Bachsolisten under Roy Goodman (Concertgebouw), the Rotterdams Philharmonic under Rozhdestvensky and the Netherlands Chamber Orchestra under Christian Zacharias. She has performed Mozart’s “Exultate Jubilate” for the Royal Household of the Netherlands and Belgium under Massimo Zanetti and toured with Frans Bruggen and the Orchestra of the 18th Century in Rameau’s “Les Indes Galante”.
She has been a soloist with multiple orchestras and groups in North America such as Tanglewood, the National Arts Centre under Pinchas Zuckerman, Toronto’s Tafelmusik and Continuum, Victoria Symphony, Pacific Baroque Orchestra, Cleveland Baroque, CBC Music from Montreal and the Ottawa Chamber Music Festival. Recently she presented a recital at the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam with the Leupold Trio. Grimm has recorded for Erato, Harmonia Mundi, NM Classics, Vanguard Classics, Troubadisc and Sony.
