Notes & Reviews:

Charles Richard-Hamelin is one of today's most promising Canadian pianists. He was the winner of the 2011 Prix d'Europe 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 Chopin's 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!

The Gazette
Charles Richard-Hamelin ended the semis with a superbly absorbing concert where he seemed to follow his hands like a child after a butterfly. After an astonishing Pour le Piano by Debussy and some sweetly imaginative Scriabin, he performed Chopin's Sonata No. 3 opulently and with unbelievable ease. He transmits love for the instrument.

The Huffington Post
Charles Richard-Hamelin went for an intimate bonding with Rach 2 that transformed the concerto into a mesmerizing symphonic fantasy.
