Marc-andrÉ Hamelin (20:00)

20:00 - 22:00
2018-01-16T20:00:00+00:002018-01-16T22:00:00+00:00
Feinberg:
Sonata No 1 in A, Op 1
Sonata No 4 in E flat minor, Op 6

Beethoven: Sonata No 23 in F minor, Op 57 Appassionata
Schumann: Fantasie in C, Op 17
 
Marc-André Hamelin isn’t like other pianists: his combination of towering virtuosity and questing intellect have made him one of the foremost musical explorers of our day. But he’s still peerless in the classics, and 19th-century masterpieces by Beethoven and Schumann frame this typically imaginative programme, in which Hamelin shares his latest rediscovery: the deeply poetic music of Samuil Feinberg, a forgotten disciple of Rachmaninov and Scriabin.
Is it possible for a pianist to be too good? If anyone faces jeopardy with that question, it’s Marc-André Hamelin… The New York Times
