The Crypt Sessions: Alexandre Tharaud
Mon, April 4, 2016, 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM EDT
Wine and cheese at 7:00, Concert begins at 8:00PM
Join us for an extraordinary evening with world-class French pianist Alexandre Tharaud as he plays Bach's towering masterwork The Goldberg Variations. He recently performed the work in Paris following the ISIS terrorist attacks, and now brings the piece's transcendence and deep humanity to the Crypt chapel of the Church of the Intercession.
Tharaud has been described by The New York Times as a "soulful...gripping" pianist, whose playing is capable of playing with both "ferocity...and breathtaking tenderness," and NPR said he "ranges from ravishing to rollicking." The Times picked his new Erato recording of Bach's Goldberg Variations as one of the best of the 2015, and we are honored and excited to welcome him to The Crypt Sessions
There will be a wine and cheese reception at 7:00 (included in ticket price) before descending into the crypt.
