About

Helen Heslop

HH Promotions London Ltd and LLC was set up by Helen Heslop in 2013 to promote classical piano concerts worldwide, starting with those of the highly-acclaimed Italian pianist Carlo Grante. In 2014 and 2015 we sponsored a world tour of Carlo Grante’s 3-recital series “Masters of High Romanticism”, featuring single-composer programmes of works by Chopin, Schumann and Brahms in major cities around the world. See Carlo Grante’s calendar

Prior to moving into classical music promotion, Helen served as editor of Carlo Grante’s 2013 book Fundamentals of Piano Methodology (Rugginenti, Milan, 2013). She also edited a condensed version, ‘Carlo Grante’s Fundamentals – preparing to play the piano securely and well’. She is translating other writings on music, including Grante’s book Study Notes.

Helen studied Russian History and Literature at Harvard University and holds a Ph.D. in economics. Before returning to music, she was an economics fellow at the Harvard Russian Research Center, a lecturer on economic theory at l’Université du Québec and an economist at the Wiener Institut für Internationale Wirtschaftsvergleiche in Vienna, specialising in the economics of the performing arts and in the economies of the former Soviet Union.

Her article ‘The study of a musical instrument as an alternative system of belief’ came out in the Autumn 2014 issue of the European Piano Teachers’ Association journal Piano Professional. Download the article here.

In 2013 Helen set up the non-profit corporation The Concert Artists’ Promotion Trust, to raise funds to help classical musicians perform live.
