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.
