Charles Richard-Hamelin, silver medalist and laureate of the Krystian
Zimerman award of the best sonata at the International Chopin Piano
Competition in 2015 will
play for our Society on November 13, 2016. He is the first
Canadian to win a prize in this competition which takes place every
five years and is considered one of the
most difficult and prestigious competitions in the world.
It was a very close race between him and Korean Seong-Jin Cho and

way. I had the opportunity to attend the Competition this year, and my
reflection on my experience will be posted on vanclassicalmusic.com in
the coming week.
