Marc-André Hamelin's startlingly original blend of musicianship and virtuosity has earned him legendary status. Long known for his matchless exploration of unfamiliar pianistic terrain, Mr Hamelin is now recognized worldwide for the originality and technical brilliance of his performances of the classic repertoire. Writing in The New Yorker, senior critic Alex Ross pronounced: 'Hamelin's legend will grow—right now there is no one like him.'
Mr Hamelin is heard as recitalist throughout the United States and his native Canada, as well as in Europe, Australia and the Far East. Recently Mr Hamelin was presented with a rarely bestowed lifetime achievement prize by the German Record Critics' Award. He has recorded some fifty CDs for Hyperion.
Marc-André Hamelin was honoured to be made an Officer of the Order of Canada in 2003 and a Chevalier de l'Ordre du Québec in 2004; he is also a member of the Royal Society of Canada. He makes his home in Boston.
