Pianist Alexandre Tharaud, 44-year-old native Parisian, did something 15 years ago that some musicians might consider downright crazy-- he got rid of his piano. "Most people do their work outside of their homes, so I'm the same," he said. "I need to work outside of my house — I work better that way. It's advice I give to other pianists who feel overwhelmed by their instrument." we'll hear Alex play Bach this afternoon at 12:35 on 89.5 Fm and kbaq.org!
