This season, Hélène will be working with some of her dearest friends and colleagues.

September kicks off by opening the season for The Philadelphia Orchestra with Yannick Nézet-Séguin and Bartók’s Piano Concerto No. 3, which they take to New York for a one-off concert at Carnegie Hall. Hélène then travels to Europe to share the stage with Lionel Bringuier and the Orchestre Philharmonique de Nice for two concerts performing Ravel’s Piano Concerto in G Major, organized by the city as part of the Victorine Festival to celebrate the centenary of the famous film studios.

At the end of the year, Hélène will reunite with Teodor Currentzis, this time with his own orchestra, musicAeterna, for only two concerts at the Luxembourg Philharmonie and the Gasteig in Munich. We don’t want to give too much away so to see what’s in store for the New Year, view Hélène’s Concert Calendar.

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.
