The diamond-like playing of the French pianist, the finest of his generation, made for a splendid concert.

Quite an eclectic mix of works were on show – Bach, Schubert, Couperin and Chopin being the composers represented – with each one seemingly designed to demonstrate a different facet of Tharaud’s immense talent, whether it be his feel for melody or the pace and timing of his touch.

Yet amidst the virtuosity you could point to two constants: beauty and brilliance.
