Patrick Hemmerlé is a French pianist based in Cambridge. He is a fellow commoner and musician in residence at Clare Hall, part of Cambridge University.

His primary interest is for the music of the great Austro-German composers, mainly Bach, Beethoven, Schumann and Schubert. Patrick has developed a double concert format which allows him to put in perspective Bach’s Goldberg Variations with Beethoven’s Diabelli Variations, the last three Sonatas of Schubert and Beethoven, or the 48 Preludes and Fugues of Bach.

He devotes part of his time to composers who have remained relatively unknown and regularly includes in his concert programmes the works of Novak, Frank Martin, Emmanuel and many others.

Patrick has released two CDs, one for the Spanish Label Orpheus with works by Schumann, Brahms and Novak. The other for IndeSens with Novak’s Pan and Tchesnokov’s La Neige. A third CD with works by the French composer Jean Roger-Ducasse is in preparation.

Patrick also gives lectures on music and also concert-lectures in which the works are discussed as well as played. He has given master classes in both England and France. He was trained in Paris, where he studied at the Conservatoire à rayonnement régional with Billy Eidi winning first prize in 2002. He then continued his studies further, having private lessons with Nadine Wright, Joaquin Soriano, Ventislav Yankov and Eric Heidsieck.

Patrick is laureate of the International Competitions of Valencia, Toledo, Grosseto, Epinal and more recently CFRPM in Paris. He has received prizes for the best interpretation of works by Chopin, Albeniz, Beethoven ( Concerto Prize), Novak, Frank Martin and Tchesnokov.
