Notes & Reviews:

International Record Review, February 2015
Tharaud has a completely natural feeling for Ravel's style...a really enthralling collection.

This specially-priced six-disc set compiles selections from Alexandre Tharaud's award-winning recordings of modern repertoire on harmonia mundi. Solo works by Satie and Ravel (complete) are featured alongside chamber music recordings with frequent collaborators including cellist Jean-Guihen Queyras and violinist Isabelle Faust. Also included is Tharaud's reading of the fascinating and colorful concerto by Thierry Pécou.
