Aria: Opera without Words

4.0 2
by Jean-Yves Thibaudet
 
Rarely has a pianist sounded so in love with his chosen repertoire. Wherever you turn you will hear playing of a princely lustre and virtuosity.

Overview

Rarely has a pianist sounded so in love with his chosen repertoire. Wherever you turn you will hear playing of a princely lustre and virtuosity.

Editorial Reviews

BBC Music Magazine - Tim Parry
[The pieces] are inventive and pianistically resourceful.... Thibaudet is always poetically refined and plays with delicacy and colour.
San Francisco Chronicle - Joshua Kosman
The tunes are hard to resist, and Thibaudet plays them with lyrical charm and plenty of technical pizzazz.
