“Every note he fashions is a pearl…the joy, brilliance and musicality of his performance could not be missed.” Thus The New York Times describes a musician who has, over more than three decades, built an unassailable reputation as one the world’s very finest pianists.
During the 2015/16 season JEAN-YVES THIBAUDET embraces three significant residencies: with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, the Seattle Symphony Orchestra, and the Colburn School in Los Angeles. At the latter he embarks upon the second of a three-year engagement where his passion for education and fostering young musical talent is invested in masterclasses and performances with the students.
Also this season Thibaudet gives recitals across the United States, Europe, and Asia. He collaborates with the Emerson and Alma quartets, performs with cellist Gautier Capuçon in a duo recital at Vienna’s Musikverein, and takes Grieg’s Piano Concerto on tour with Tonhalle-Orchester Zürich.
Thibaudet’s recording catalog of more than 50 albums has received two Grammy nominations, the Diapason d’Or, Gramophone and ECHO awards, and the Edison Prize. He has also made a significant impact in the worlds of film, fashion, and philanthropy – being featured on the award-winning film soundtracks for Atonement, Pride and Prejudice, and Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close, and attired in a concert wardrobe designed by Dame Vivienne Westwood. Thibaudet was inducted into the Hollywood Bowl Hall of Fame in 2010. In France he has been honored with the Victoire d’Honneur and was made Officier of the Ordre des Arts et des Lettres by the French Minister of Culture in 2012.
