“Is it possible for a pianist to be too good? If anyone faces jeopardy with that question, it’s Marc-André Hamelin…Outwardly miraculous, beneath the surface it felt as if each note’s every possibility had been considered in advance, then ensconced in a pianism of total authority.” – The New York Times
