The practice habits of Alexandre Tharaud

He is one of my favorite pianists, try his Chopin Preludes.  The blog Ionarts reports:

After this residency at the Cité de la Musique, he will take a vacation of three months, during which he will move into a new apartment, with a view of the Seine. He will still not have a piano at home, which he offers as advice to many young musicians. Most important, he says, is not to play on a beautiful piano, because it does not encourage you to work.

Tharaud only practices on pianos in the homes of his friends.
