Marc-André Hamlein

Marc-André Hamlein
“A performer of near-superhuman technical prowess” — The New York Times


“Hamelin is that Superpianoman. No scale is too quick, no fingering too contorted, no counterpoint too dense to deter him. His recital was a heroic journey, and he was given a hero’s celebration by the audience.” – Christian Hertzog, San Diego Union Tribune

The celebrated pianist Marc-André Hamelin is renowned for his jaw-dropping technique, eclectic programming  and compelling artistry. His eclectic recital will include works by Beethoven, Mozart, CPE Bach, and Fauré, culminating with Ravel’s hallucinatory Gaspard de la Nuit, which the composer described as “three romantic poems of transcendental virtuosity.”

“In everything he revealed himself to be a musician’s musician, a virtuoso in the most comprehensive sense of the word… jaw-dropping.” – John von Rhein, The Chicago Tribune
