Alexandre Tharaud brings color and his awe-inspiring virtuosity to music that spans Baroque France to Biedermeier Vienna. Couperin’s Pièces de clavecin—brief but brilliant character pieces—are among the touchstones of Baroque keyboard music. High spirits take flight in Mozart’s A-Major Sonata with its famous “Alla Turca” finale. Beethoven’s Sonata No. 31 is profound and moving, while Schubert’s genial German Dances delight with their charming melodies.
