Washington Performing Arts Society
Marc-André Hamelin, piano
Pianist Marc-André Hamelin's unique blend of musicianship and virtuosity brings forth interpretations remarkable for their freedom, originality, and prodigious mastery of the piano's resources. A musician of broad musical interests and curiosity, Hamelin is renowned in equal measure for his fresh readings of the established repertoire and for his exploration of lesser known works of the 19th and 20th century, both in the recording studio and in the concert hall. The New Yorker has stated, "Hamelin's legend will grow. Right now there is no one llike him."
Performance Timing: Approximately 1 hour, 45 minutes, including one 15-minute intermission.
