Jean-Yves Thibaudet For more than three decades, Jean-Yves Thibaudet has performed world- wide, recorded more than 50 albums and built a reputation as one of today’s finest pianists. From the very start of his career, he delighted in music beyond the standard repertoire: from jazz to opera, which he transcribed himself to play on the piano. His profound professional friendships crisscross the globe and have led to spontaneous and fruitful collaborations in film, fashion and visual art.
