Summertime begins for Hélène.

Last week, Hélène concluded her European recital tour at the Festspielhaus Baden-Baden. Hélène toured her ‘Memory’ programme to sixteen concert halls, journeying from the Elbphilharmonie Hamburg, Gasteig Munich, Semperoper Dresden to the Auditorium de Lyon and KKL Lucerne to name a few.

Taking the summer to recoup and focus on the next season, we fast forward to September where Hélène will pit-stop in the US for four performances with Philadelphia Orchestra and Yannick Nézet-Séguin before returning to Europe for concerts with Lionel Bringuier and Orchestre Philharmonique de Nice, shortly followed by four concerts with Teodor Currentzis and musicAeterna.
