Frans Helmerson

  • Cellist


Helmerson's love for chamber music led him to take the position as artistic director of the Korsholm Festival in Finland 1994-2001, and he is frequently appearing at a number of international festivals, such as in Verbier, Prades, Naantali, Kuhmo and Ravinia. In 2002 he formed the Michelangelo String Quartet with M. Martin, S. Picard and Nobuko Imai.

During the next season Helmerson will be touring both as cellist and conductor in Great Britain, Finland, Sweden, Norway, France, Holland, Germany, Switzerland, as well as in the US, Korea and Japan.

Frans Helmerson can be heard on CD in concertos by Dvorak and Shostakovich, the Brahms Double Concerto with violinist
Mihaela Martin and on a recent release of the Bach Solo Suites.
