Alexandre Tharaud’s relationship with film music runs deep – it also ranges wide. On his double album, Cinema, the French pianist delves into 50 celebrated film scores by composers from 19 countries. Among them are Michel Legrand, John Williams, Ennio Morricone, Francis Lai, Marvin Hamlisch, Nino Rota, and Philip Glass. As Tharaud says: “This album pays tribute to them with a selection of pieces for piano and orchestra and for piano solo, most in their original versions, creating a sound-world every bit as thrilling without the motion picture.”
