I figured this was worth sharing as these things often don't show up for quite some time due to the YouTube algorithms.

Besides, how often is Rach's Op. 3 performed in it's entirely along with Prokofiev's 4th Sonata?

Fair warning, sound is a little wonky.

Any relation to the other Canadian Hamelin (Marc-Andre)?

No, they're completely unrelated.

The older is Marc-André Hamelin, while the younger is Charles Richard-Hamelin; the position of the hyphen being significant. It's a mere coincidence, I guess, that they are both Canadian.

By the way, the Youtube video indicates that this took place in Kalmazoo, but no such place exists; it's Kalamazoo. Oh, well, who cares about accuracy these days?

The "a" is missing, so maybe it's a "gala"?

Cheers!

I WAS concerned about the placement of the hyphen, but I corrected myself assuming they at least got the guy's name right. I guess there's nothing for it now...Not really sure where the gal/gala flub is. I'm mildly curious.

He's a wonderful pianist. I loved his performance at the Chopin Competition.

He’s a fantastic pianist and not related to Marc-Andre Hamelin, but they have met once or twice!

Thanks for posting, I enjoyed it!

Luckily for him he has a formidable technique.

Imagine having Hamelin in you name otherwise...

I wonder if there's a composer somewhere called Bob Mozart, or something similar.

I have a cousin named Robert Schuman (his real name, with one "n"). However, he's an accountant, not a musician.

I'm thankful he has "Hamelin" in his name as it allowed more than a few, I imagine, including myself to encounter his playing of Kapustin, Lyapunov, and the like a couple years before he participated in the International Chopin Competition.

The playing was impressive then, but it's even more captivating now in my opinion.

I'm proud to say I'm nearly 25 so this is ABSOLUTELY before my time. My respect for the reference and word/letter play.

I'd say that William Schuman was a pretty good composer.

And just for the record, cousin Robert Schuman is the son of my late uncle, William Schuman. Uncle Bill was a musician in his first career; he played the cello and occasionally the theramin. Later in life, he was an optician.

Robert Schuman is also the name of the "father of the EU".
