Renaissance woman, Hélène Grimaud, is a deeply passionate and committed musical artist whose pianistic accomplishments play a central role in her life. She is also a woman with multiple talents that extend far beyond the instrument she plays with such poetic expression and peerless technical control. She is undoubtedly a multi-faceted artist. Her deep dedication to her musical career, both in performances and recordings, is reflected and reciprocally amplified by the scope and depth of her environmental, literary, and artistic interests. Her prodigious contribution to and impact on the world of classical music were recognised by the French government when she was admitted into the Ordre National de la Légion d’Honneur (France’s highest decoration) at the rank of Chevalier (Knight).
