About

Alexandre Tharaud returns with a an album of music by Haydn and Mozart, all composed  between 1777 and 1786, including Mozartís masterpiece the Piano Concerto No.9 'Jeunehomme', widely regarded as one counting among his greatest works. 

The piano works are cleverly weaved together through the cadenzas. While he performs Mozartís cadenzas in the Piano Concerto No.9, Tharaud has written his own cadenza for the Rondo in A Ė employing themes from 'Jeunehomme' Ė as well as for the Haydn Piano Concerto Ė in which he uses motifs from Mozartís famous Rondo 'alla Turca', which with the final movement being a Rondo 'all'Ungherese', gives the piece a truly Eastern European flavour. 

The album sees Tharaud reunite with old friends Ė the award-winning French-Canadian chamber orchestra Les Violons du Roy under the baton of their music director Bernard Labadie, and the outstanding mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato in Mozartís concert aria 'Ch'io mi scordi di te?'.
