Programme Note

'His range of touch and colour, and his sheer enthusiasm, shine through every jewel-like piece.' (The Guardian)

The acclaimed French pianist's versatility, his exciting programmes and recordings for harmonia mundi and ERATO (formally Virgin Classics and for whom he now records exclusively) have built Alexandre Tharaud an increasingly large fan base and he reached a whole new audience when he appeared in Michael Haneke's Oscarwinning film Amour.

Tonight his programme opens with Schubert's Moments Musicaux, tender miniatures that are some of the composer's best-loved piano pieces. Next comes Tharaud's own arrangement of the iconic Adagietto from Mahler's Symphony No.5. In the second half he juxtaposes works by two French composers of different eras - delicate, ornamental Baroque music of Couperin and Ravel's Miroirs, six imaginative and characterful sound pictures.
