Notes & Reviews:

Canadian pianist Charles Richard-Hamelin, winner of the silver medal and the Krystian Zimerman prize at the 2015 Frederic Chopin International Piano Competition in Warsaw.

Charles Richard-Hamelin continues to gain momentum in the upper echelons of the piano world with the release of an excellent new album recorded live in Quebec City. Though written within a span of just over 100 years, the works recorded here nevertheless represent three centuries of music: Beethoven's Two Rondos, Op. 51 are steeped in Classicism; the works by Chopin are in the Romantic tradition; and Enescu's Piano Suite No. 2, Op. 11, with its unique harmonic language and impressionistic style, pointed toward one of the roads modernity would take in the early 20th century. Impressive!
