Once again we have the great pleasure of presenting Marc-André Hamelin on our stage! He will join us on Thursday, March 23rd for an evening of sonatas including the great Beethoven “Appassionata” and Chopin’s Sonata No 2 in B-flat minor, Op 35.
The entire evening looks like this:
Haydn – Sonata in C major, Hob. XVI: 48
Samuel Feinberg – Sonata No 2 in A minor, Op 2
Samuel Feinberg – Sonata No 1 in A major, Op 1
Beethoven – Sonata in F minor, Op 57, “Appassionata”
Scriabin – Sonata No 7, Op 64, “White Mass”
Chopin – Sonata No 2 in B-flat minor, Op 35
With a busy performance schedule and over 70 recordings already released, somehow Hamelin still finds time to record even more with Hyperion! In June 2015, he was inducted into the Gramophone Hall of Fame, recognizing this amazing work. Since he was last on our stage in 2015, Hyperion released a recording of the Franck Piano Quintet in F Minor with Hamelin and the Takacs Quartet (May 2016). And you can pre-order Hamelin’s next album on iTunes which will include Medtner’s Piano Concerto 2 and Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto 3 https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/medtner-rachmaninoff-piano/id1184264860?app=iTunes
