Jean-Yves Thibaudet

An elegant artist of extraordinary musical depth, pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet is world-renowned for his sophisticated playing. His mastery of rhythmic intricacies, luminous colors and poetic inspirations have placed him in high demand with the world's top conductors, orchestras and music festivals, and have earned him accolades from the press as "one of the most exciting talents before the public today." A multi-faceted performer, he has forged a career not only on the orchestral stage, but also in the areas of solo recitals and chamber music. A sought-after collaborator, he performs with such talents as Cecilia Bartoli and Angelika Kirchschlager. A native of Lyon, France,Thibaudet has recorded over 20 classical CDs.
