Charles Richard-Hamelin

It has become October’s hot ticket in London: the Parsons and Poole Legacy Concert. Created by alumni to honour Margaret Parsons and Clifford Poole, the Friday concert and Saturday Masterclass brings world-class musicianship to Western’s campus.

This year we are pleased to welcome internationally acclaimed pianist Charles Richard-Hamelin as the guest artist.

Silver medalist and laureate of the Krystian Zimerman award of the best sonata at the International Chopin Piano Competition in 2015, Charles Richard-Hamelin is standing out as one of the most important pianists of his generation.

Originally from Lanaudière in Québec, Charles Richard-Hamelin has studied with Paul Surdulescu, Sara Laimon, Boris Berman and our inaugural guest artist for the Parsons & Poole Legacy Concert, André LaPlante. He is a graduate from McGill University, the Yale School of Music, the Conservatoire de Musique de Montréal and now works on a regular basis with pianist Jean Saulnier.

Mr. Richard-Hamelin's program will include:
W. A. Mozart - Fantasy in D minor K. 397
F. Chopin - Four Impromptus - No.1 in A flat major op. 29, No. 2 in F sharp major op. 36, No. 3 in G flat major op. 51, No. 4 in C sharp minor (Fantasy-Impromptu)
