Marc-André Hamelin

Friday, February 24, 2023 • 7:30PM

“A performer of near-superhuman technical prowess” (The New York Times), Canadian pianist Marc-André Hamelin is known worldwide for his unrivaled 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 – earning his place as a true icon of the piano. Equally respected as a composer, he is considered “one of the most adventurous and certainly the most courageous pianists of recent times” (International Piano Quarterly).
