Extractions: Wall Street Journal Praised as "one of the most exciting talents before the public today", French pianist Jean Yves Thibaudet is renowned for his eloquent phrasing, lustrous colours and brilliant technique. Over the past seventeen years, he has performed with virtually every major orchestra in the world. Elegant and engaging, Jean-Yves Thibaudet is a master of the great Romantic concerto repertoire, as well as the more intimate music of Debussy and Ravel. He has accompanied such vocal superstars as Cecilia Bartoli, and Dmitri Hvorostovsky in recital. Ever-eager to expand his horizons, Thibaudet made his Metropolitan Opera debut in 1996-97 in Giordano's Fedora in a cameo role as the concert pianist/spy, Boleslao Lasinski. A regular at the summer festivals, he has performed for eighteen consecutive seasons at Italy's Spoleto Festival and for seven consecutive seasons at the London Proms.
Greg Sandow -- Jean-Yves Thibaudet Review of jeanyves thibaudet s recital at Avery Fisher Hall, April 20, 1997, The pianist seemed to glare, restrained himself, and then resumed http://www.gregsandow.com/thib.htm
Extractions: If I'd been looking for adventurous classical musicians, Jean-Yves Thibaudet might have caught my eye at the Metropolitan Opera, acting a role onstage in Giordano's faded but irresistible old warhorse Fedora . Or I might have noticed him performing Schubert impromptus in the film version of Portrait of a Lady. Or I might have been intrigued by his latest CD, on which he plays music by jazz great Bill Evans. But what got my attention was his 1995 recording of Rachmaninoff's Third Piano Concerto. Normally that piece is played by romantic piano titans, and in some ways Mr. Thibaudet is one, at least in firepower. He commands the instrument, exploding huge cascades of notes, apparently with little effort. Yet at the same time he's restrained, almost intellectual. What makes his performance work (apart from its bracing virtuosity) is focus and intelligence, along with a disarmingly delicate, almost innocent touch when the music gets quiet. So on April 20 I was at Avery Fisher Hall, to hear Mr. Thibaudet play his biggest New York recital yet. He sat at the piano, hesitated briefly with his hands over the keys, and then traced a sound that could have been a pencil sketch of a shimmer in the air. This was the start of Debussy's second book of Preludes, a courageous opening for a concert in such a huge space. Mr. Thibaudet's courage paid off; unassumingly, he drew the space toward him. But after the second prelude, there was a sound like muttered thunder, the footsteps of late arrivals pounding to their seats. The pianist seemed to glare, restrained himself, and then resumed luckily the third prelude is assertive, and gave him energy only to be interrupted twice again. His quiet clarity helped keep the music's spell intact, though here I missed the sound that's not in his Rachmaninoff. I would have liked a kind of golden poetry that might have brought each of the dozen preludes into a world of its own. I could hear Mr. Thibaudet shaping separate worlds, but they emerged in black and white. I wanted color.

Extractions: This all started with a "Consumer Guide" I wrote for the Village Voice, New York's big alternative weekly. I listened to 17 recordings of this suddenly popular concerto, and wrote 17 quick paragraphs, with a grade attached to each one. Poor David Helfgott got an F; Vladimir Horowitz got an A, for his version with Fritz Reiner conducting. (Though a later Horowitz release, a live performance with Eugene Ormandy, only got C+.) You can read this adventure, right here on this site. Much later and by a happy coincidence I was asked to write about the concerto once again, this time for the Los Angeles Times. In fact, I was asked to defend it against critical attacks, which I was happy to do. The more I listened to it, for my Voice consumer guide, the more I loved it. And I enlisted two very articulate pianists to help me defend it Alexander Toradze, and Byron Janis.
