Stunning performance by Charles Richard-Hamelin in the sold-out recital

Excitement was building in anticipation of the Charles Richard-Hamelin Vancouver debut on November 6th at the Playhouse. I think we all agree that Charles' performance even surpassed our expectations in a remarkable evening of music that will be remembered for a long time. What a wonderful feeling to have a Canadian pianist with such an affinity for Chopin. For those who missed his concert we have good news: Charles will return soon. Here are a few comments:
"It was one of the more impressive piano recitals we've seen in quite some time."
"It was a magical evening of music making."
"As good a performance by a pianist I've ever seen! Flawless technique and beautiful restrained dynamics!"
You can read here a review of this recital by Geoffrey Newman.

The day before the concert on November 5th, Tom Lee Music organized a meeting with music students at their Steinway piano showroom where Charles Richard-Hamelin shared his competition experience.
You can see photos from this meeting.
