An artist of unique vision and originality, French pianist Alexandre Tharaud is heralded for his brilliantly-conceived programs and best-selling recordings that range from Bach, Chopin, Rameau and Ravel to music inspired by Paris cabaret of the 1920s. Last season he returned to Carnegie Hall after a successful debut in the 2012-13 season where he played Scarlatti and Liszt, the night after a mixed program of jazz and classical at New York’s famous nightclub, Le Poisson Rouge. This season, Tharaud will release a disc of Bach’s Goldberg Variations, considered by many the work demanding the most requirements of virtuoso techniques from a performer, as well as the piece that sums up the entire history of Baroque variation. Tharaud will perform the Goldberg Variations in his Savannah debut, and he will also play in a chamber concert with Daniel Hope & Friends. His playing has been praised in The New York Times as “exquisite, crisp and beautifully textured” and noted for its combination of “refinement and daring.”

“Tharaud’s skill at assembling programs, well-known from several recordings, was matched by a sensitivity and depth of performance that did much to dispel the old idea of French pianism being brilliant, frivolous and lightweight.”
