Jean-Yves Thibaudet, Piano

Part of the Harriman-Jewell Series

From the very start of his career, pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet has delighted in music beyond the standard repertoire, from jazz to opera, including works which he has transcribed himself for the piano. His profound professional friendships crisscross the globe and have led to spontaneous and fruitful collaborations in film, fashion, and visual art. His lifelong passion for education and fostering young musical talent is profound and genuine. He is the first-ever Artist-in-Residence at the Colburn School in Los Angeles, where he makes his home. Listeners might also recognize his playing from their favorite film scores, some of which include Wes Anderson’s 2021 film The French Dispatch, Pride & Prejudice, Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close, and Atonement which won an Oscar for Best Original Score. His program in Kansas City will feature the complete Debussy Préludes.
