Philippe Cassard is not only an excellent pianist, having recorded beautiful CDs, but also a really unique radio man. Every saturday morning, he is giving the "Portraits de famille" broadcast on the France-Musiques channel. During two hours, he talks about his passion for one or several pianists, and broadcasts magnificent recordings, either from commercial recordings (CDs, LPs...) or concerts recorded by the channel. - of course, he talks French, which can be an obstacle for some of PS members (but an excellent French, so it's good lessons ); - but most of the time, we hear music, and what a music ! Cassard has really an encyclopedic knowledge of piano music and pianists. Being a pianist himself, he has a very sound judgement about them, and he only presents people he likes. But he is at the same time very open-minded, and has the same admiration for very 'classical' pianists as much as others who have very specific styles. Among the pianists he has already presented, we find (from the most recently presented): Cyprien Katsaris, Samson François, Arcadi Volodos, Alicia de Larrocha, Artur Pizzaro, Emil Gilels, Kristian Bezuidenhout, Nathalia Milstein, Agustin Aniévas, Richard Goode, Lili Kraus, Géza Anda, Andras Shiff... All the broadcasts (from the programme's creation) can be downloaded from France-Musiques internet site: http://radiofrance-podcast.net/podcast09/rss_14503.xml I hope the site is accessible from anywhere in the world. A real mine for all piano lovers... Enjoy 'Portraits de famille" !
