Marc-André Hamelin is ranked among the elite of world pianists for his unrivalled blend of musicianship and virtuosity in the great works of the established repertoire, as well as for his intrepid exploration of the neglected music of the 19th and 20th centuries.
In 2015-16, Hamelin performed with the London Philharmonic and Vladimir Jurowski at the Alte Oper Frankfurt (Liszt Totentanz and Rachmaninoff’s Paganini Variations) and again later in the season at the Royal Festival Hall for performances and recording of Rachmaninoff Cto. No. 3 and Medtner Cto. No.2; tours North America in Liszt 1 with the Budapest Festival Orchestra and Iván Fischer to Carnegie Hall, the Kennedy Center and the Maison symphonique de Montréal; has a three part residency at the Muziekgewbouw in Amsterdam, and debuts at the Teatro alla Scala with the La Scala Orchestra led by Jakob Hrusa.
