    • I am watching his performance in the preliminary round of the 2015 Chopin competition & the same question also arose in my mind.

  • The only clue I could find was a comment on Youtube which asked, “Do you find it inconvenient to be a pianist named ”Hamelin”? It sounds like the writer believes the two are not related.

  • He is a nephew of Marc-André Hamelin – See M-A H’s website. Now two great pianists called Hamelin – double lucky.
