Charles Richard-Hamelin (piano)


Charles Richard-Hamelin is one of todayís most promising Canadian pianists. He was the winner of the 2011 Prix díEurope and, in 2014, he won the second prize at the Montreal International Musical Competition.

The works of Chopin on this recording were composed between 1843 and 1846, a period in which Chopinís final compositional style came to the forefront. He emerged from this period even more of a perfectionist than before. The spontaneity and passionate impulses of youth gave way to a more pensive, meditative mood that in turn could express a much wider palette of emotions. Accomplished virtuosity!
