Canadian Marc-André Hamelin enjoys a privileged position among pianists. “He’s a reincarnation of the swaggering pre-war virtuoso who composed his own pieces, and felt free to add more notes to well-known showpieces, just to make them harder,” wrote Britain’s The Telegraph. “Hamelin comes up with some superb programmes and his Prague recital is proof of this,” says member of the Prague Spring’s Artistic Board, pianist Ivo Kahánek. Reviewers speak highly of his performances, in which he makes extremely familiar motifs sound fresh, as if the ink on the composer’s manuscript had only just dried. And all this conveyed with infinite spontaneity and finesse.
