The Chopin Society presents Charles Richard-Hamelin
Ever since winning the silver medal at the 2015 International Chopin Competition in Warsaw, Richard-Hamelin has been going from strength to strength, delighting audiences in major musical centers with the polish of his playing as well as the depth and maturity of his interpretation. In 2016, he was given the honour to substitute for an ailing Maurizio Pollini in a recital at the Prague Spring Festival. Recent concert highlights include Prokofiev’s 3rd piano concerto with the Montreal Symphony, Mozart’s A major piano concerto (K. 488) with the Toronto Symphony, as well as solo and concerto appearances throughout Canada, Japan, Germany, and Poland.
Richard-Hamelin’s first two recordings on Analekta received widespread acclaim from such publications as Gramophone, BBC Music Magazine, and La Presse. Current recording projects include his third solo album for Analekta and the complete Beethoven violin sonatas with Andrew Wan.
