Claude Helffer, né le 28 juin 1922 à Paris, fait partie de ces interprètes d'exception qui accompagnent et suscitent la création, témoins actifs d'une époque et médiateurs privilégiés entre les compositeurs et le public. Élève de Robert Casadesus (pour le piano) et de René Leibowitz (pour l'écriture), diplômé de l'École Polytechnique, engagé dans les combats de son temps comme dans les différents mouvements de la création musicale, Claude Helffer a mené une grande carrière de soliste, sans négliger les ensembles de musique contemporaine (il participa à l'aventure du Domaine Musical dès ses débuts) ni la musique de chambre. Il a créé un grand nombre d'œuvres, certaines ayant été composées à son intention, et il est devenu l'interprète de prédilection de certains compositeurs comme Boulez ou Xenakis. Il retrace ici sa trajectoire, livrant ses convictions et ses souvenirs, développant sa conception de l'enseignement, parlant des compositeurs qu'il a fréquentés, racontant son travail avec des chefs illustres. C'est à la fois le portrait d'un musicien inspiré, passionné, généreux, et celui d'une époque foisonnante qu'il a marquée de sa personnalité
