“Why is Patrick Hemmerle not better known? A cancellation happened and within hours he was booked for 3 days ahead. We had the 4 Chopin Ballades followed by 4 transcriptions from opera. Did this concert redefine “Tour de force”? I think so. The audience reaction was, for a classical concert, as wildly enthusiastic as I have seen in my 17 years at the Club and no exaggeration. He also speaks fluently and informatively when required. Music clubs try to seek out young artists or interesting artists who lie slightly in the shadows, unlike a very few high profile musicians who make the top grade and whose fee is beyond music clubs. Patrick has immense ability and should be far better known – and of course he is going to return to Rhyl and soon. What a find!”  

Concert Organiser, Rhyl Music Club, October 2023 

Patrick played a beautifully fresh and original account of the Schumann Concerto in Kendal with Lakeland Sinfonia, the audience erupted at the conclusion.  He had, prior to that, given an amazing recital for us in Hexham.  He is mostly unknown to the wider concert going public which is a sin! A super artist”
