Marc-André Hamelin

Hamelin is a titanically gifted, boundary-testing performer whose breathtaking live appearances have made him “one of the most adventurous and certainly the most courageous pianists of recent times” (International Piano Quarterly). Says Alex Ross of The New Yorker, “right now, there is no one like him.”

Having earned nearly every accolade in international music, the Montréal native brings his “formidable technique” (Boston Globe) to a bold program that pairs Liszt and Haydn with Charles-Valentin Alkan, the forgotten French genius whose fiercely difficult compositions, melodic and intense, Hamelin has done so much to rediscover

PROGRAM:
HAYDN: Variations in F Minor, Hob. XVII: 6
MOZART: Sonata in A Minor, K 310
LISZT: Venezia e Napoli
FAURE: Nocturne No. 6, Op. 63
ALKAN: Symphonie for solo piano

 

“A one-of-a-kind concert artist.”
Los Angeles Times

“Marc-André Hamelin ranks among the small handful of performers in every generation whose abilities defy the imagination.”
