Marc-André Hamelin

Hamelin won the award for instrumentalist of the year (piano) for his album on Hyperion Records of late solo piano music by Ferrucio Busoni. The album demonstrates Hamelin's long-standing devotion to music by lesser-known composers, as well as his tendency to focus on extremely challenging works.

Latest Recording
Eight of Mozart’s divinely inspired Piano Sonatas here receive performances of mercurial inspiration from consummate-musician cum virtuoso-wizard Marc-André Hamelin. His four Haydn albums have enthralled—this new Mozart will not disappoint. Two Rondos, a Fantasia, and a decidedly quirky Gigue complete a delight of a double album.
