Alexandre Tharaud, Piano

Zankel Hall
“He conceives the whole piece as a drama that sucks us in and doesn’t let go, and carefully paints vivid character along the way.” That’s what The Guardian wrote of Alexandre Tharaud’s recording of Bach’s Goldberg Variations. One of the pinnacles of keyboard literature, Bach’s set of 30 variations on an original theme poses extreme technical challenges for the performer, who must frequently cross and overlap hands to negotiate the winding threads of counterpoint.
