An exclusive recording artist for Hyperion Records, his discography spans more than seventy albums, with notable recordings of a broad range of solo, orchestral and chamber repertoire. In September 2023, the label released Hamelin’s recording of Fauré’s Nocturnes & Barcarolles plus the four-hand Dolly suite, played with his wife Cathy Fuller. In 2022, Hyperion released a two-disc set of C P E Bach’s Sonatas & Rondos and a double album of William Bolcom’s Complete rags, both of which received wide critical acclaim and chart success.
Hamelin has composed music throughout his career, with over thirty compositions to his name. The majority of these works—including the Études and Toccata on L’homme armé, commissioned by the Van Cliburn Foundation—are published by Edition Peters. Hamelin performed his Toccata on L’homme armé along with music by C P E Bach and Bolcom in an NPR Tiny Desk concert in 2023. His most recent work, a piano quintet, was premiered in August 2022 by the celebrated Dover Quartet and Hamelin himself at La Jolla Music Society in San Diego.
Hamelin makes his home in the Boston area with his wife Cathy Fuller, a producer and host at WCRB. Born in Montréal, he is the recipient of a lifetime achievement award from the Preis der deutschen Schallplattenkritik, and has received seven Juno Awards, eleven Grammy nominations and the 2018 Jean Gimbel Lane Prize in Piano Performance, the last of which was awarded by Northwestern University’s Bienen School of Music. In 2020 he was awarded the Paul de Hueck and Norman Walford Career Achievement Award for Keyboard Artistry from the Ontario Arts Foundation. He is an Officer of the Order of Canada, a Chevalier de l’Ordre du Québec and a member of the Royal Society of Canada.
