Biography

The French pianist Alexandre Tharaud is one of the most popular concert pianists in Europe and has an impressively wide repertoire and a comprehensive back catalogue of recorded work. He comes from a theatrical family and was born in Paris in 1968. At the behest of his parents, Tharaud began piano studies at the age of five and was enrolled into the Conservatory of the 14th Arrondissement before progressing to the Conservatoire de Paris in his early teens.

After some impressive results in classical music competitions the young pianist's international career began to gather momentum and he was soon building a reputation in North America and Japan as well as in Europe. Although he has always been in demand as a live performer his recording career was slow to take off and it's only since the age of 30 that he has become firmly established as a recording artist.
