“This pianist plays to perfection...” (Diapason)
Martin Helmchen’s victory at the prestigious Clara Haskil Competition in 2001 at the age of nineteen immediately propelled him to the front of the international stage. His undeniable presence and lyricism, at once fervent and full of poetry, make him a highly sought after interpreter of Mozart and Beethoven. The young German pianist, barely thirty, currently performs with the finest orchestras and the most renowned conductors in the world. He will make his first appearance at the Festival of Colmar in one of the most famous concertos of the romantic repertory, Beethoven’s Emperor.
