About

Bernard Labadie has established himself worldwide as one of the leading conductors of the Baroque and Classical repertoire, a reputation that is closely tied with Les Violons du Roy and La Chapelle de Québec which he founded and continues to lead as music director to this day. With these two ensembles he regularly tours Canada, the US and Europe, in major venues and festivals such as Carnegie Hall (most recently in March 2012) and Lincoln Center, Walt Disney Concert Hall, Kennedy Center, Barbican, Concertgebouw, and the Salzburg Festival, among others.

Marc-Andre Hamelin has proven himself - in three highly lauded volumes of Haydn's piano sonatas - to be a formidable Haydn pianist, combining style, exuberance and dazzling technique with a palpable sense of joy in the music. This release is the fruit of a partnership with the award-winning Canadian chamber orchestra Les Violons du Roy and their director Bernard Labadie, whose previous recordings for Virgin Classics and other labels have received the highest critical acclaim. With his scintillating performances of Haydn's three most popular Piano Concertos, Hamelin further demonstrates his special affinity for this repertoire.
