Notes & Reviews:

The Observer, 23rd November 2014
Tharaud has had fun interjecting his own magpie cadenzas into Mozart's Rondo K386 and Haydn's D major piano concerto. The French pianist's restless energy and esprit are infectious throughout. Les Violons du Roy and Bernard Labadie are sparkling partners.

Gramophone Magazine, November 2014
DiDonato at the peak of her form in Mozart's great K505 concert aria. Her impeccable intonation no matter how decorative the passagework, her effortless agility in all registers and her genius for word-painting (together with Tharaud's vibrant and eloquently shaded piano obbligato) are worth the price of this disc.

With a wide-ranging discography in tow, Alexandre Tharaud returns with an album of treasured works by Mozart and Haydn. The uniqueness of this CD lies in that the pianist performs two of his own cadenzas. He is accompanied by the Canadian chamber orchestra Les Violons du Roy under the direction of Bernard Labadie. On the fifth track of this album, Mr. Tharaud is joined by superstar mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato for a rendition of Mozart's concert aria "Ch'io mi scordi di te? ... Non temer, amato bene", performed with the Les Violons du Roy orchestra.
