Jean-Guihen Queyras is one of the finest cellists performing today. His recordings of the complete Suites for solo cello by Bach are widely regarded as the best since Pablo Casals's recordings in the 1930s. As a soloist, he has performed with many of the world’s great orchestras, including the Philharmonia, Orchestre de Paris, Philadelphia, Tonhalle Zürich, Leipzig Gewandhaus, among others. He made his Carnegie Hall debut in New York in March 2004 and his BBC Proms debut to unanimous acclaim in 2008.
As a recitalist, French-born pianist Alexandre Tharaud has performed across the world: Théâtre des Champs-Elysées, Opéra de Versailles, Cologne Philharmonie, Prague Rudofinum, Royal Albert Hall and Wigmore Hall in London, Concertgebouw Amsterdam, John F. Kennedy Centre Washington D.C., and the Vienna Musikverein.
