PROGRAM SCHEDULE 2018-2019
32nd Season
Sun Sep 23 2:00

Marc-André Hamelin

To begin the Club’s 32nd season, we will concentrate on the pianistic virtuosity of Marc-André Hamelin. Born in 1961 in Montreal, Hamelin is known for his interpretation of a wide variety of composers. He is also well–known for his attention to lesser–known composers especially of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century and for performing works by pianist–composers such as Leopold Godowsky and Franz Liszt. Alex Ross in The New Yorker referred to his “monstrously brilliant technique and his questing, deep-thinking approach”. We will sample a number of recordings from his impressive catalogue.

Hamelin will be performing at the Jane Mallet Theatere, St. Lawrence Centre for the Arts, 27 Front St. E. 416-366-7723. Tickets $47.50 - $52, students $10.

Programme: Bach-Busoni: Chaconne; Feinberg: Sonata No. 3 Op.3; Castelnuovo-Tedesco: Cypresses; Chopin: Polonaise-Fantaisie in A-Flat Op. 60; Chopin: Scherzo No.4 in E Op.54
