Marc-André Hamelin (piano)

‘A performer of near-superhuman technical prowess’ (The New York Times), pianist Marc-André Hamelin is known worldwide for his unrivalled 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 nineteenth, twentieth and twenty-first centuries—in concert and on disc—earning him a place as a true icon of the piano. He regularly gives concerts around the globe with the leading orchestras and conductors of our time, and performs recitals at the foremost international concert venues and festivals.

An exclusive recording artist for Hyperion Records, his discography includes more than sixty albums, with notable recordings of a broad range of repertoire. In 2020 Hyperion released two acclaimed albums by Hamelin—one a solo album of Liszt and Thalberg opera transcriptions, and the other piano sonatas of composer-pianist Samuil Feinberg.

Hamelin has composed music throughout his career, with nearly 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. His most recent work, Suite à l’ancienne, was premiered in February 2021 by pianist Rachel Naomi Kudo with funding from her Gilmore Young Artist Award.

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.
