Helene Grimaud is widely considered to be the most cerebral among today’s generation of classical pianists. Besides her extraordinary musical talent, what sets her apart from her peers is her unwavering devotion to wolves.

Grimaud founded the Wolf Conservation Center just outside of New York City. The center is used to educate people about the plight of wolves. and to let them observe the animals up close. To Helene, the preservation of the wolves, a species she believes has been falsely demonized through the ages, is a calling as important to her as her music.

  1. Wow. She is AMAZING. I loved the Rachmaninov… And her dedication to the wolves (and the environment) is the cake or the icing… whichever way you want to look at it. FAN!

    • Absolutely marvelous! I was totally mesmerized with your movement of your hands while playing such beautiful pieces. Love the fact that you are involved with the wolves and the environment in which they live.

  3. I met someone that was involved in a study of the wolf with a grant from Harvard. A very special person. She had a pack. The alpha female had two weaning pups that were 3 mos. old when I met them. The mother was awesome and I had interaction with her as she was drawn to me. It’s difficult to find the words to discribe the experience…one I will never forget.

  5. Both the subject matter and the intelligent treatment of this documentary make it stimulating to watch and listen to as well as fascinating overall. An enriching experience, in short. I commend it to anyone interested in music.
