Marc-André Hamelin, “A performer of near-superhuman technical prowess” (The New York Times), live-streams a marvelously eclectic program from his home near Boston, Massachusetts, taking us on a journey that includes a musical reflection on "overwhelming peace" by Liszt, miniature masterpieces by Debussy, and a few pieces from "The Outer Limits" of the piano repertoire. This concert is co-presented by the 92nd Street Y, Chamber Music Society Detroit, and University of Chicago Presents.
