In 2014, he also won the second prize at the Montreal International Musical Competition and the third prize at the Seoul International Music Competition in South Korea.

Charles is the recipient of the Order of Arts and Letters of Quebec and the prestigious Career Development Award offered by the Women’s Musical Club of Toronto. Charles Richard-Hamelin has recorded eight albums to this day, all published on the Analekta label. In 2015, he first recorded acclaimed performances of Chopin’s last works.
