Charles Richard-Hamelin – Second Prize winner at the 17th Fryderyk Chopin International Piano Competition.
To open our series of portraits of the most interesting characters from the most recent edition of the Competition, we present a double album by the winner of the Second Prize, as well as the Krystian Zimerman Prize for the best sonata performance. The release contains a complete set of the solo works performed by the pianist at his recitals during the first three rounds.
The Blue Series is an exceptional series of recordings that has been realized by The Fryderyk Chopin Institute since 2010, and constitutes a presentation of musical portraits of the most interesting personalities from the Fryderyk Chopin International Piano Competitions in Warsaw over the years.
