Overview

Hamelin plays Hamelin: a glimpse into the fabulously bizarre musical mind of one of the greatest piano virtuosos of today. Marc-André Hamelin's twelve Études, written over a period of nearly twenty-five years, have already achieved cult status by reputation as pianistic challenges beyond the reach of most human fingers. That they will immediately take their place in the concert repertoire of any pianist who thinks themself equal to them is indicated by their contemporaneous publication by Peters Edition New York. The disc is completed by more of Hamelin's compositions, including the quiet and reflective Con intissimo sentimento and the musical love poem Cathy's Variations. As a whole it is a detailed portrait of this talented and complex musician. From the Label
