  • His delicate touch draws out a golden, bell-like resonance that contrasts beautifully with the chamber strings, whose period bows ensure the texture is never too rich or Romantic.

    — Charlotte Smith, BBC Music Magazine (On the MOZART Piano Concertos Nos. 20 and 23 album, published by Analekta)

  • The Canadian offers a reading of remarkable formal perfection. His phrasing is at once lilting and finely articulated, and his playing testifies to a beautiful loftiness of vision, as much as to a great attention to detail, treated with subtlety.

  • Another winning tandem
    ★★★★ 1/2
    After the success of his Chopin concertos, Charles Richard-Hamelin’s new orchestral recording is destined for the same honors. […] At 30, Charles Richard-Hamelin is already a national treasure!

    — Christophe Huss, Le Devoir (Montreal), January 31, 2020
