Initially directed towards a pianist formation, Helene Dautry tardily approaches cello. She quickly develops an exceptional way that leads her (after five years in the class of Maurice Gendron) to the conservatoire national supérieur de musique de Paris in 1982. She follows then the lessons of Jean Hubeau for the cello and for the chamber music.
Holder of a first price of cello in 1985, she carries on her studies in Paris, following the third cycle of chamber music improvement in the class of Jean Mouillère (1987-1989).
Soloist of the Jean-François Ribald chamber orchestra (1987-1989), she had the occasion to perform in the whole world to play concertos of the baroque repertoire (Haydn, Boccherini...). Fifteen discs were recorded with this formation and were distributed by Sony, BMG and RCA in Japan and the United States.
Helene Dautry is also prizewinner of the international academy Maurice Ravel; she was invited to play as a soloist under the direction of Frederic Chaslin, Patrick Fournillier, and Jean-Pierre Wallez... Helene Dautry played with artists such as: Catherine Collard, the Parisi Quartet, Ami Flammer, Sonia Wieder-Atherton, Bernard Lerouge, Gerard Jarry, Annie Jodry, Géry Moutier, Elisabeth Balmas, Philippe Cuper, Mila Goldwasser, Edouard Garcin, Suzan Manoff, Emmanuel Strosser...
Helene Dautry appeared in the festivals of Roque-d'Anthéron (1989-1990), the Midis minimes de Bruxelles (1997), the Jeunes solistes en Périgord (Catherine Collard), Gramont, the Arcs, Rouffard (2001), Saint Petersburg, Frankfurt, Milan...
Holder of a teaching certificate, she was promoted professor at the conservatoire national de région de Lille in 1995. In 2000 she was promoted at the national music school of Fresnes. At this time, she is a soloist in the orchestra of Besancon under the direction of Peter Csaba. In November 2002 she was invited to give a master-class to the conservatoire national supérieur de musique de Paris for a tribute to Maurice Gendron.
In 2004, Helene Dautry records the Debussy's and Prokoviev' sonatas, and the Schuman's Fantasiestücke with Mila Goldwasser.
