Alexandre Tharaud has distinguished himself as one of France's leading pianists. Recognized on the international stage as an artist of unique vision and originality, Alexandre  is heralded for his brilliantly-conceived programs and bestselling recordings that range from Bach, Chopin, Rameau, and Ravel to music inspired by Paris cabaret of the 1920's.

This season, he makes his debuts with the Philadelphia Orchestra and the Atlanta Symphony and returns to the Toronto Symphony. He will also appear at Boston Symphony Hall and at Walt Disney Hall, and perform on tour throughout North America with Les Violons du Roy--with whom he has recorded Bach and Mozart for Warner Classics. Last season, he appeared in recital in Boston, New York, Chicago and Washington, and throughout the US, including a return to Carnegie Hall, and his debut at Chicago Symphony Hall. Alexandre has enjoyed working with such conductors as Peter Oundjian, Bernard Labadie, Daniele Gatti, Lionel Bringuier, Stéphane Denève, Vladimir Jurowski, Rafael Frühbeck de Burgos, and Yannick Nézet-Séguin, among others.

In Fall 2015, Warner released Alexandre's recording of the Bach Goldberg Variations to great critical acclaim. He will perform the piece on tour in North America in 16.17, and, this season, launches the CD with performances at the Philharmonie in Paris, St John Smith’s Square in London, the Cologne Philarmonie, and the BOZAR in Brussels ... read full bio
