A proud French wine lover, Hélène learned to combine it with the cheese delicacies found in England when she moved to London in 2013. She is the viola player of the Doric String Quartet with which she performs around the world. Hélène’s chamber music partners have included Nicolas Altstaedt, Jonathan Biss, Alina Ibragimova, Elisabeth Leonskaja, Mitsuko Uchida and Peter Wispelwey, as well as the Brentano String Quartet and the Nash Ensemble. She is a regular guest at the Marlboro Music Festival in America and Prussia Cove in England, and has performed at various world-renowned venues around the world, such as the Queen Elizabeth Hall, Wigmore Hall, Carnegie Hall, Konzerthaus Berlin and The Royal Concertgebouw. In addition to her performance career, Hélène teaches viola and chamber music at the Royal Academy of Music of London. When her viola is safely at home, she can be found riding an old motorcycle across London.
