With a reputation as one of today’s finest pianists, Jean-Yves Thibaudet has recorded more than 50 albums and performs a range of solo, chamber, and orchestral repertoire in worldwide venues. The 2022-23 season has him performing with colleagues including Renée Fleming, Itzhak Perlman, Michael Tilson Thomas, and Emanuel Ax, and playing Debussy’s Préludes in Switzerland, Canada, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, and throughout the U.S., including Carnegie Hall.
Thibaudet’s recordings have received two Grammy nominations, and his 2021 album “Carte Blanche” features a collection of deeply personal solo piano pieces never before recorded by the pianist. In 2016, on the 150th anniversary of Erik Satie’s birth, Decca released a box set of Satie’s complete solo piano music performed by Thibaudet – one of the foremost champions of the composer’s works.
He has also worked in film, as soloist in Dario Marianelli’s award-winning scores for “Atonement” (which won an Oscar for Best Original Score) and “Pride and Prejudice,” in Alexandre Desplat’s soundtrack for “Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close,” and in Wes Anderson’s film “The French Dispatch.”
