Jean-Yves Thibaudet on ‘Carte blanche’
Friday, September 10, 2021
The pianist explores the personal connections behind his new album
To celebrate his 60th birthday – and his first album for Decca in a decade – Jean-Yves Thibaudet has programmed a beautiful solo recital full of works with strong personal connections for him. Called ‘Carte blanche’, it ranges from Couperin to a Charles Trenet transcription, and is out today. Editor Martin Cullingford caught up with the pianist for this week's Gramophone Podcast.
This week's Gramophone Podcast is in association with Leipzig – the City of Music, where in June and July 2022 the Leipzig Opera Festival will focus on the music of Wagner. For full information at visit wagner22.de
