Pianist Marc-Andre Hamelin

Pianist and composer Marc-Andre Hamelin will perform at the Kimmel Center on January 13th.

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.
