Book Description

Oct. 28 2004 Prpo :actualite cinema (Book 12304)
" Je n'ai aucune nostalgie de l'enfance. " Dès les premiers mots, Hélène Grimaud donne le ton de son étonnant récit. L'itinéraire de cette pianiste française de renommée internationale emprunte mille chemins buissonniers ; on la suit, de seuil en seuil, à travers son adolescence prodige, sa rupture avec le milieu parisien, son exil aux Etats-Unis, les doutes et la solitude à New York - jusqu'à cette nuit où son regard croise celui d'Alawa, la louve d'où viendra la renaissance. Eloge des mains, bestiaire fantastique, contes mystérieux, profils inattendus d'artistes et de musiciens dessinent le fil rouge de ce livre dont l'éclat des facettes forme le portrait unique d'une rebelle absolue. Variations sauvages est un hymne vibrant à la musique et à la liberté, un plaidoyer pour la reconnaissance des loups et la sauvegarde de la nature. Un petit traité d'insoumission à l'usage de tous les enfants terribles.

About the Author

Née à Aix-en-Provence, Hélène Grimaud vit aujourd'hui aux Etats-unis. Musicienne de renommée internationale, elle a été reçue première à l'unanimité au Conservatoire de Paris à l'âge de treize ans, puis a obtenu le grand prix de l'Académie du disque deux ans plus tard pour son premier CD dédié à Rachmaninov. Hélène Grimaud partage son temps entre ses deux passions, la musique et les tournées qui l'entraînent partout à travers le monde et le centre qu'elle a fondé dans l'Etat de New York, le Wolf Conservation Center, consacré à la sauvegarde des loups.

4.0 out of 5 stars An artistic journey March 3 2009
Format:Paperback
A compelling autobiographical account of a young artist's journey from childhood to mature artist, with a highly unusual side trip into a unique approach to nature conservancy. Grimaud is clearly a passionate, iconoclastic and utterly facinatiing person whom one would be intrigued to meet and get to know personally -- but who would likely be a challenging and perhaps exasperating one to have as a friend. Her frank account of her rebellious teenage years and of her first encounter with the wolf are particularly memorable.
