Alexandre Tharaud and Jean-Guihen Queyras play a moving concert in Gauting
Long planned, it became reality on 11.01.2023: Alexandre Tharaud and Jean-Guihen Queyras played a concert with works by Marin Marais, Franz Schubert and Francis Poulenc in the bosco Bürger- und Kulturhaus Gauting, which completely overwhelmed the press and audience.
Only after three encores did the enthusiastic audience let the two musicians leave the stage.
[On Marais Couplets de Folies d'Espagne]: "Here Queyras and Tharaud pulled out all the stops in terms of technical differentiation and opened up a wide spectrum of expressive variations: lyrical, dance-like, resolute, capricious, dreamy, hymnal, whirling, narrative, bravura". (Süddeutsche Zeitung, 12.01.2023, Reinhard Palmer)
[On Schubert's Sonatina in D major (D 384)]: "The instrumentalists elicited from every note the sparkling joy of life, the youthful sensitivity of a hyper-sensitive spirit, the rapturous longings of a loving soul and the vitality of an alert mind". (Süddeutsche Zeitung, 12.01.2023, Reinhard Palmer)
[On Schubert's Sonatina in D major (D 384)]: "Syncopated volatility contrasted in the middle movement with a touchingly melancholy, soul-deeply inward singing." (Süddeutsche Zeitung, 12.01.2023, Reinhard Palmer)
