Charles Ridhard Hamlin smallThe Royal Conservatory of Music has announced the addition of a joint recital featuring CDA winner Charles Richard-Hamelin and Tony Yike Yang, both winners at the recent International Fryderyk Chopin Piano Competition in Warsaw. The Conservatory concert takes place January 15 at 7:30 pm yang_yike_webin Mazzoleni Concert Hall, located in historic Ihnatowycz Hall.
Both artists will perform works by Chopin.
Charles Richard-Hamelin won the WMCT’s $20,000 Career Development Award live competition last April and will play in the Music in the Afternoon 2016-17 season.

No Canadian has ever played in the finals of the International Fryderyk Chopin Piano Competition and this year there were two. Charles Richard-Hamelin, of Montreal, placed second and also won the Krystian Zimerman Prize for best performance of a sonata. Tony Yike Yang, of Toronto, placed fifth and at 16, was the youngest laureate in the history of the competition. The January concert is a unique opportunity to hear the two Canadian rising stars before they embark on a tour of Japan and South Korea.
