Grammy nominated pianist and composer Marc-André Hamelin will perform Saturday at UMBC as part of the Candlelight Concert Society’s 50th concert season. Hamelin, nominated for 11 Grammy awards, has been called “a performer of near-superhuman technical prowess” by The New York Times. “He is, without a doubt, one of the most brilliant pianists of today,” Irina Kaplan Lande, Candlelight’s artistic director, said. “It is an incredible opportunity to see him perform live.” Hamelin will perform Beethoven’s Piano Sonata No. 29 in B-flat Major, commonly known as the “Hammerklavier Sonata.” Other works Hamelin will present include selections by Gabriel Fauré and the Maryland premiere of a composition by Hamelin. The performance begins at 7:30 p.m. at UMBC’s Linehan Hall.
