Long known for his matchless exploration of unfamiliar piano terrain, Hamelin is now universally recognized for the depth and originality of his interpretations of Classical and Romantic repertoire. He'll appear at the Kimmel Center's Perelman Theater on January 13th at 8 pm, playing works by Liszt, Berg, and Deussy, and his own compositions.
