About Corey Hamm

Corey Hamm has established a unique musical profile as a solo pianist and chamber musician of diverse talents. In recent years, he has toured extensively with Frederic Rzewski's hour-long solo piano epic The People United Will Never Be Defeated! His recording of this work won Spotify's Best Classical Recording in 2014. Future recording plans include a CD of works written for him and the complete piano works of Henri Dutilleux. 


Corey Hamm has commissioned over 200 solo, chamber and concerto works, many for his ensembles PEP (Piano and Erhu Project, his duo with erhu virutoso Nicole Ge Li), The Nu:BC Collective, and Hammerhead Consort. His three chamber music initiatives have received praise both for their recordings and artistry. Recent performances include The People United Will Never Be Defeated! in NYC in honor of Rzewski's 80th birthday, as well as an Asian tour in Beijing, Shanghai, Taipei, Hong Kong, and Bangkok. In addition to his solo performances and his work with PEP, Corey Hamm regularly plays with the violist Marina Thibeault.

Le pianiste Corey Hamm se distingue de plus en plus dans le monde musical en se produisant fréquemment en Amérique du Nord et en Asie, tant comme soliste que comme chambriste. Son enregistrement de l’impressionnant poème épique pour piano solo The People United Will Never Be Defeated!, une composition d’une heure de Frederic Rzewski (Redshift Records), a été couronné Meilleur disque classique par Spotify et aux Western Canadian Music Awards en 2014.
