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



The celebrated pianist Marc-André Hamelin is renowned for his compelling artistry, jaw-dropping technique, and inventive programming. His multifaceted Parlance debut will begin with a keyboard suite by CPE Bach followed by Hamelin’s own dazzling “Suite in the old style,” combining baroque and contemporary elements. His recital will culminate with Beethoven’s Olympian “Hammerklavier” Sonata of which his publisher wrote, “It excels above all other creations of this master not only through its most rich and grand fantasy, but also in regard to artistic perfection and sustained style, and will mark a new period in Beethoven’s pianoforte works.”

“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
