He retreated to composition in the 1930s, ran a music school in Philadelphia in the 1940s and, as The Philadelphia Inquirer’s David Patrick Stearns now reports, continued to be active in music until soon before his death at the age of 108.</p> Mon, 18 Nov 2013 01:16:57 +0000 David Patrick Stearns 6672 at http://wrti.org Pianist Marc-Andre Hamelin's Newly Found Treasure Pianist Marc-Andre Hamelin http://wrti.org/post/pianist-marc-andre-hamelin <p>Join Jill Pasternak for a conversation with the piano virtuoso Marc-Andre Hamelin. A startlingly original blend of virtuosity and power has earned this Canadian artist legendary status. Long known for his matchless exploration of unfamiliar piano terrain, Hamelin is now universally recognized for the depth and originality of his interpretations of Classical and Romantic repertoire. He'll appear at the Kimmel Center's Perelman Theater on January 13th at 8 pm, playing works by Liszt, Berg, and Deussy, and his own compositions.</p> Thu, 07 Jan 2010 15:36:00 +0000 Jill Pasternak 2277 at http://wrti.org Pianist Marc-Andre Hamelin
