Performer Composers

Notes & Reviews:

"I like to play the cycle of 'Preludes' without interruption, with the same tension, a certain underlying fear even in the most serene preludes." Two years after his acclaimed recording of the Chopin 'Waltzes', Alexandre Tharaud returns to the composer he has played most often and who has never failed to move him deeply. In addition to the 'Preludes in A-flat' and 'Op. 45' and the 'Trois Nouvelles Etudes', he has coupled the cycle with 3 short pieces by Federico Mompou (1893–1987). In their personality, their careers, their exclusive relationship with the piano, attention to sonority, and inward melody, the two composers have much in common, and the result is sheer poetry.

BBC Music Magazine
Conceiving the 24 Preludes as an uninterrupted whole, and complementing them with some all-too-rare Mompou miniatures, Alexandre Tharaud has recorded a breathtaking disc.
