He has recorded some sixty albums for Hyperion, ranging from the neglected masterpieces of Alkan, Ives, Medtner and Godowsky to brilliantly received interpretations of Schumann, Brahms, Chopin, Liszt, Haydn and Debussy. Noted as a composer-pianist, Hyperion released a long-awaited recording of Hamelin’s own Études in all the minor keys in 2010. His Toccata on ‘L’homme armé’ was commissioned by the Van Cliburn Foundation as the required work for all contestants in the 2017 Competition. His works are published by Edition Peters.
In recognition of his remarkable discography, Hamelin was inducted into the Gramophone Hall of Fame in 2015. He has also received the lifetime achievement award of the Preis der deutschen Schallplattenkritik.
An Officer of the Order of Canada since 2003 and a Chevalier de l’Ordre du Québec since 2004, Hamelin is also a member of the Royal Society of Canada. Born in Montréal, he makes his home in Boston with his wife, Cathy Fuller.
