Live from Wigmore Hall, London Alexandre Tharaud plays Mozart, Mahler and Schubert
The characterful French pianist plays a typically imaginative programme. The first half of the concert includes one of Mozart's best known sonatas as well as some rarities, while the second half takes us from the pianist's own transcription of Mahler's great Adagietto to the bitter-sweet world of Schubert.
