Review: Marc-André Hamelin at Wigmore Hall

Canadian pianist (and sometime composer) Marc-André Hamelin can play anything, you know…….

Or so it appeared last night as he wowed the Wigmore audience with a programme of radical and adventurous repertoire. Read my review for Bachtrack here


  1. I discovered your blog sometime back and added it to the blogroll on my blog. I have just got around to checking it out for myself and am thoroughly enjoying the experience. Living in a small surf town on the south coast of Western Australia, I am a little starved of conversation about piano and your blog is assuaging that to some degree. After providing my own tuition for a couple of years, I know you are horrified, I am on the hunt for a piano teacher here and may well have found one but will not start until March. I could not agree more with your recent post about the importance of performance opportunities for solo instrumentalists particularly. In my previous musical life as a classical guitarist, my teacher insisted that we attend a monthly forum open to all providing the opportunity to play for each other. A gruelling but otherwise incredibly worthwhile experience that really pushes ones development as a player along. When I eventually graduated ans started my own teaching practise insisted the same of my students too along with a monthly ensemble night which was terrific fun. Well done on your diploma result by the way too!
