Marc-André Hamelin Solo Recital at 92Y
Sunday December 12, 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm$20.00
“A musician’s musician, a virtuoso in the most comprehensive sense of the word – jaw-dropping.”
The Chicago Tribune
Pianist Marc-André Hamelin brings supreme grace, illumination and warmth to formidable technique in everything he plays. He joins us to perform a characteristically fascinating program, pairing a Beethoven masterwork with four short, beautiful mood pieces by the nearly unknown turn-of-the-century Russian composer of French heritage Georgy Catoire, and a vibrant dance suite straddling Baroque and Classical impulses by C.P.E. Bach – a composer of much exploration by Hamelin. The summit of the program is Beethoven’s Olympian late piano work, the “Hammerklavier” Sonata – one of the greatest possible blueprints for Hamelin’s extraordinary artistry.
Concert also available via livestream and available for 72 hours from time of broadcast.
