This album brings together world premiere recordings of three aesthetically diverse piano concertos that were written for Alexandre Tharaud. They are Left, alone by the Dane Hans Abrahamsen (b. 1952), Future is a faded song by the Frenchman Gérard Pesson (b.1958) and Kuleshov by the Argentian-born Frenchman Oscar Strasnoy (b.1970). Strasnoy has said that his concerto was “inspired by Alexandre Tharaud’s unique and inimitable phrasing and clarity of playing.” No doubt those words could apply to all three works on the album.

1. Abrahamsen: Left, alone: I. Very fast (2:36)
2. Abrahamsen: Left, alone: II. Slowly walking (3:27)
3. Abrahamsen: Left, alone: III. Presto fluente (1:25)
4. Abrahamsen: Left, alone: IV. Slowly (0:53)
5. Abrahamsen: Left, alone: V. Prestissimo tempestuoso (1:58)
6. Abrahamsen: Left, alone: VI. In a tempo from another time – In a time for a slow motion – Suddenly in flying time, “Fairy Tale Tim (6:57)
7. Pesson: Future Is a Faded Song (Future Is a Faded Song) (23:38)
8. Strasnoy: Kuleshov (22:01)
