The Steinway & Sons Podcast

Marc-André Hamelin


Classical pianist Marc-André Hamelin is known for his consummate musicianship and brilliant technique in the great works of the established repertoire, as well as for his intrepid exploration of the rarities of the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries — in concert and on disc. In this episode of Soundboard, Hamelin speaks with Steinway's Editor in Chief, Ben Finane, a day before his recital at Carnegie Hall, where he performed on Carnegie's Steinway Model D concert grand. Here, they discuss the music of Debussy, Feinberg, Haydn, Liszt, Ives and more.


‘It’s not a question of language. If the music is genuine enough, it doesn’t matter what the language is. I’d rather concentrate on what is actually being expressed.’
