Marc-André Hamelin

BACH Chaconne in D Minor from Violin Partita No. 2 (arr. Busoni) 
SCHUMANN Fantasy in C Major, Op. 17
ALEXIS WEISSENBERG  Six arrangements of Songs Sung by Charles Trénet
CHOPIN  Polonaise-fantaisie in A-flat Major, Op. 61
CHOPIN Scherzo No. 4

You’ll hear Castelnuovo-Tedesco’s evocative depiction of cypress trees, a legendary pianist’s arrangement of French popular songs, and some of most technically challenging classics in the repertoire—it’s what you’ve come to expect from Marc-André Hamelin. His “preternatural clarity and control” (The New York Times) is ideal for Busoni’s grand arrangement of Bach’s monumental Chaconne—an arrangement that asks the pianist to play “quasi trombone”—and dazzling showpieces by Schumann and Chopin.
