Notes & Reviews:

This new recording by Alexandre Tharaud follows in the tradition of his earlier CDs devoted to Rameau, Ravel and Bach. Once again the young French pianist revisits repertoire which we thought had already been explored right down to the tiniest detail. "Listening to Mr. Tharaud's crisply articulated and vividly etched playing, a listener might guess that he is a Baroque specialist who, for some reason, prefers the modern piano to the harpsichord. But a glance at his discography shows that Baroque music is only one of his interests....he has clearly considered how bass lines and internal counterpoint should be balanced against a singing melody." - The New York Times

Gramophone
All these performances suggest a fastidious musical intelligence with an immaculate technique... Harmonia Mundi's sound is as crystalline as the playing, and these scrupulously modern and sensitive performances are among the finest available.
