The Koerner Hall debut of French pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet, “a musician with fearless, flawless fingers”(The West Australian). He plays an extremely wide range of solo, chamber, and orchestral repertoire – with “great energy, brilliant technique and unassailable artistry” (Cleveland Plain Dealer). “It’s hard to imagine this music emerging with more loving finesse and more exquisite detail.” (Seattle Times)
Thibaudet has performed worldwide, recorded more than 50 albums, built a reputation as one of today’s finest pianists, and had an impact on the film world. In addition to Zigman’s score for Wakefield
, he was soloist in Dario Marianelli’s award-winning scores for the films Atonement
(which won an Oscar for Best Original Score) and Pride and Prejudice
, and recorded Alexandre Desplat’s soundtrack for the 2012 film Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close
. He had a cameo in Bruce Beresford’s film on Alma Mahler, Bride of the Wind
, and his playing is showcased throughout.
