“A performer of near-superhuman technical prowess” (The New York Times), pianist Marc-André Hamelin is known worldwide for his unrivalled blend of consummate musicianship and brilliant technique in the great works of the established repertoire, as well as for his intrepid exploration of rarities. The music of Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach makes complex stylistic demands of the performer like little else of its time; the extraordinary drama and intensity tempered by Enlightenment elegance and the influence of the Baroque. Hamelin’s performances set new standards in this endlessly absorbing repertoire.
