Alexandre Tharaud

Join us on Sunday, April 11th at 1 PM on WRTI 90.1 and Monday, April 12th at 7 PM on WRTI HD-2 to hear this Philadelphia Orchestra in Concert broadcast from 2016. All three of the works on the program were composed in Paris within a five-year period (1928-33), one by a German, another by a Frenchman, and the last by an American. And they all marvelously combine elements of serious composition with popular influences, notably from jazz.

June 1, 2020. Complices is the title of our Classical Album of the Week, and for the non-Francophiles among us, that translates to "accomplices" or "partners." So, you may be wondering—who are these accomplices? Everybody I asked about this assumed what I did—that it must refer to the two featured artists themselves, cellist Jean Guihen Queyras and his collaborator, pianist Alexandre Tharaud.
