Glashütte Presents The Ninth Glashütte Music Award Winner, Ms. Helen Glimmo

On June 1, 2012, the German top watch brand Glashütte and the Dresden Music Festival jointly held the ninth Glashütte Music Festival award ceremony. This year, a prize of € 25,000 was awarded to French pianist Hélène Grimaud. Mr. Dieter Pachner, vice president of global sales for Glashütte, and Mr. Jan Vogler, chairman of the Dresden Festival, jointly presented the prize to Ms. Hélène Grimaud . Later, Hélène Grimaud held an extraordinary concert at the Dresden Semper Opera House. As an ambassador for the Villa Sans Souci International Children’s Camp, Ms. Grimmo decided to donate the prize money to support an event organized by the organization in Brandenburg.
   Hélène Grimaud is one of the most distinctive and successful pianists of our time. Her music is powerful and can effectively use music as a medium for communication and mutual understanding. She is committed to social and environmental protection activities, such as creating a ‘wolf protection center’. An active member in the preparation of the Villa Sans Souci International Children’s Camp, Hélène Grimaud was awarded the 2012 Glashütte Music Award in recognition of her contribution.
    As in previous years, the Glashütte Music Award trophy was produced by two apprentices from the Alfred Hevig Watchmaking School, which is owned by the Glashütte Watch Field. As an integral and indispensable part of the Glashütte Watchmaking Factory, 15 students enter this watchmaking school each year for ten consecutive years, 12 of which will become watchmakers and 3 will become toolmakers in the future. The design of the trophy is a combination of traditional watchmaking technology and modern materials. Cantilevered tourbillon with 18 lightweight screws, symbolizing the watchmaker’s superb skills. The complex flying tourbillon invented in the town of Glashütte in 1920 is a microcosm of watchmaking.
    This award, founded by Glashütte, has been jointly presented by the Dresden Music Festival and the Glashütte brand since 2004. The award is given to those artists who have devoted their lives to artistic creation and pursued art tirelessly over the past few decades. Earlier winners of the Glashütte Music Awards include the famous German conductor Kurt Masur, the American dancer John Neumeier, and the German opera conductor Jurch Hertz ( Joachim Herz), Latvian violinist Gidon Kremer, and German mezzo-soprano singer Christa Ludwig.
    With the conductor Gustava Dudamel receiving the Glashütte Music Awards in 2009, this award has new momentum: this is the first time the Glashava Music Awards have been awarded to a person who fosters and supports the future An artist who spends a lot of time and effort. Similarly, the award, which was awarded to the well-known Mariinsky Theatre Director and General Manager in 2010, Mr. Valery Gergiev, reflects this new trend. Since then, this award has been used to support the development of young artists.
