Biography

“(…) A young aristocrat of the keyboard. Cool, supple and elegant, all his performances are in the best French tradition; a fine union of sense and sensibility ... each phrase bringing a renewed sense of delight … the inwardness and grace one associates with true artists".

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 7 Jun 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I'm not a musician so this review may be of limited value.

Having enjoyed the double album by Wiener & Doucet: Les Années Folles very much and seeking more of the same I bought this. Tharaud's playing is, as you'd expect, highly polished, but seemed (to my ears at least) dull by comparison.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sheer delight 3 Mar 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I would recommend this thrilling CD to anyone interested in the world of Paris in the 1920s, its songs, its writers, its artists and their historic meeting place, Le Boeuf sur le toit. Alexandre Tharaud's brilliant performances of the music played in that venue tkae your breath away. The CD is sheer delight all round.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent listening, very witty too 16 Mar 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Would have given five stars, but I was a touch disappointed that there wasn't more Darius Milhaud; I had convinced myself that the disc title had probably suggested more.
As for the disc - I had forgotten it was bought as second-hand. It was pristine, both disc and the cover package. Quite indistinguishable from new.

5.0 out of 5 stars puts you in the mood for Paris 17 Feb 2013

Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This mashup of high (classical) and low (cabaret) makes swinging Paris sound divine. If only I could travel back in time...

5.0 out of 5 stars A CD for a wide audience 14 Nov 2012
By Asadour Santourian - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This recording is magnificently programmed, beautifully researched and lovingly performed.
A musical "Midnight in Paris" it harkens back to the overly active hot Paris Jazz era scene, a successful chapter in recreation here.

From the Editorial review:
The cabaret Le Boeuf Sur le Toit (literally The Ox on the Roof ) was a hotspot and melting pot of Parisian and international culture in the 1920s. As Tharaud explains: Every evening you would come across composers like Maurice Ravel, Erik Satie and the members of Les Six...even Stravinsky! There were French popular singers like Maurice Chevalier, Yvonne Georges, Kiki de Montparnasse and then, among the throng, lots of artists, such as Man Ray, Diaghilev, Coco Chanel, Georges Simenon...though they came from different worlds, everybody on the Paris scene came to Le Boeuf Sur le Toit for jazz and new music amidst the excitement of the Roaring Twenties. The cabaret s importance in the history of jazz can be gauged by its immortalization in the French term for having a jam session, faire le boeuf .

Having great musical assets himself Alexandre Tharaud, surrounds himself with brilliantly chosen collaborators and delivers a generous offering 26 songs (a plus in this case, as I didn't want the CD to end.) Let's hope for a sequel.
4.0 out of 5 stars This CD fits right in with Woody's "Midnight in Paris". 28 Aug 2013

This was a very enjoyable disc. I've played it many times and hope that another album in this same vain is not far behind. I'm 77 yrs old so I hope it is soon.
4.0 out of 5 stars Not the most demanding music, but well done 26 Feb 2013
By John J. Puccio - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Tharaud plays with verve and conviction, clearly reveling in a love for the music and finding the soul in it. He never tries to embellish it or hype it; he simply feels it, gently and delicately, and lets it flow lovingly from his piano. Moreover, his occasional guests make their own unique, wholly appropriate contributions, adding to the authentic feel of the music and songs.

2.0 out of 5 stars Tough sledding for me 4 Jan 2013
By J. P. Henry - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I can't remember how long it has been since I wanted to 'pass on' a CD. With all the fine promise of this creative program I found the 'piano pounding' for emphasis to be simply annoying. I tried over and over to adjust to the solo musicianship on several numbers. Some very fine; some completely tiresome - to me at least (and I have a very broad range of tolerance for unusual and fine interpretations for all types of classical music). I'm truly disappointed but appreciate the program; just not the execution.
