BBC WORLD SERVICE International Recital March 1996

FEBRUARY 18TH 1996

MARC-ANDRÉ HAMELIN PIANO


First prize-winner of the 1985 Carnegie Hall International American Music Competition, Marc-André Hamelin has been described by the hard-to-impress Harold Schonberg of the New York Times as a “super-virtuoso”. Born in Montreal in Canada in 1961, he studied at the Vincent d'Indy School of Music, then moved to Philadelphia in the United States, where he still lives.Recent highlights have included concerto appearances with the Royal Concertgebouw Amsterdam, as Well as the Philadelphia and Montreal Symphony Orchestras. His active interest in little-known repertoire is reflected in a series of highly-acclaimed recordings, which have received nominations for Gramophone and Grammy Awards, as Well as a Diapason d'Or.

Hamelin's wizardry defies the laws of nature, but it is a mark of his seriousness that he used it only to illuminate the composer's musical intentions. (Financial Times, London)

There are passages where one would swear that two pianists were playing, not just one frail human being with only two hands. And Hamelin is a fine stylist: the energy is never crude, the details are finely shaped (The Independent, London)
