Hélène Grimaud, Artist in Residence 2017-2018

We welcome the French pianist as Artist in Residence at the Gothenburg Symphony 2017-2018!

Hélène Grimaud is an artist profile that is always looking for new angles. She is known for her intensity and musical acuity and her love of music is equally apparent in chamber music by Brahms and Debussy as in piano concertos of Beethoven and Ravel.

Hélène Grimaud’s passion for music is also reflected in the interest in animals and nature. She is working to spread the knowledge about wolves and their impact on humans and the ecosystem through the wolf sanctuary Wolf Conservation Center in the United States: “The wolves are endlessly fascinating creatures which have much to teach us humans.”

Hélène Grimaud is also active in the human rights movement Musicians for Human Rights and worked as a writer: she has published three books, an autobiography and two semi-autobiographical novels.
