Live Music with Marc-André Hamelin, Pianist at Roger’s Park

November 11

Marc-André Hamelin, Pianist
November 11, 2021

Pianist Marc-André Hamelin is known worldwide for his unrivalled blend of consummate musicianship and brilliant technique in the great works of the established repertoire, as well as for his intrepid exploration of the rarities of the 19th, 20th, and 21st centuries – in concert and on disc. Having begun his piano studies at the age of 5, he studied at the École de musique Vincent-d’Indy in Montreal, then at Temple University in Philadelphia.

He was a distinguished member of the jury of the 15th Van Cliburn Piano Competition in 2017 where each of the 30 competitors in the preliminary round performed one of his compositions, the first time the composer of the commissioned work was also a member of the jury.

He was honored with the 2014 ECHO Klassik Instrumentalist of the Year (Piano) and Disc of the Year by Diapason Magazine and Classica Magazine for his three-disc set of Busoni: Late Piano Music. An album of his own compositions, Hamelin: Études, received a 2010 Grammy nomination and a first prize from the German Record Critics’ Association.

Born in Montreal, Marc-André Hamelin is the recipient of a lifetime achievement award from the German Record Critics Association. He is an Officer of the Order of Canada, a Chevalier de l’Ordre du Québec, and a member of the Royal Society of Canada.

The New York Times called him “A performer of near superhuman technical prowess.”♦
