The French pianist Alexandre Tharaud is next summer the soloist during the Prinsengracht concert in Amsterdam. The Parisian is the main guest of the free outdoor concert on saturday August 22 , which each year attracts thousands of spectators and is broadcasted by AVRO TROS directly.
Along with his musical friends brings Tharaud (46) a program with a mix of classical music, flamenco and the French chanson. The pianist is looking very forward to the concert. ‘ As for all Parisians, Amsterdam is deep inside me and always had a taste of paradise. So what a fun and what an honor to come celebrate the Prinsengracht concert with you. ‘
Tharaud has been playing piano since he was five. He has performed all over the world in concert halls and is a regular guest at music festivals, including BBC Proms and the Edinburgh International Festival. Next Sunday, he makes his debut in the series Master pianists in the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam.
