Concert pianist with a presence. Creator of new musical foundations.
Helen Sällfors has been working as a concert pianist on a freelance basis since she earned her soloist degree at the Academy of Music and Drama at Göteborg University in 2001. Helen performs as a soloist, chamber musician and accompanist, and she has made her mark in pieces such as Grieg’s piano concerto. At the university Helen studied under professor Mats Widlund and attended master classes held by professor Hans Leygraf, Liisa Pohjola and others. She was also tutored by Hamish Milne in London.
Helen is eager to create new venues for classical music. She was the pianist and the artistic producer for a series of concerts, “Musik på Högskolan” (”Music at College”), that ran for four terms, and she has been working closely with colleges and universities for many years.
On the international scene, she has performed in countries such as Holland, Finland and France.
Helen is also a trained music teacher and runs the Gothenburg based Pianoakademien, where she gives lessons.
