Why did Jean-Yves attend the 2006 Academy Award celebration?
A. Because the...
which his beautiful piano playing is heard from beginning to end was nominated
for an Academy Award for Best Music (Original Score)!
Shortly before Oscars Night, we asked Jean-Yves who records exclusively
with Decca Records, to tell us a little bit about how he came to play the
piano solo in the movie. It all happened very quickly in January 2005, he
said. He learned through his agent at Decca that the composer Dario Marianelli,
whom he didn't know personally, had been looking for him to find out if
he would be interested in playing the piano solo for the soundtrack of
Pride and Prejudice. They met, he liked the score, and they recorded
the music in London shortly thereafter. To his delight, Jean-Yves learned
that Dario, who made particular reference to his recording of Erik Satie's
complete works for piano, has a collection of his CDs.
So, how did he find the film? He urged us to "Go see it. It's a beautiful movie and the cinematography is great."
And Dario Marianelli? "He's ADORABLE!" Jean-Yves exclaimed wholehartedly.
For his part, the young composer wrote, as wholeheartedly:
"We were fortunate enough that Jean-Yves Thibaudet was interested in performing on the soundtrack of the film, and at that point I just knew that I could really let the piano be the heart of the score."
As indeed it is!
Click on title below to listen to a music clip, and be bewitched by the beautiful music which strongly evokes the emotional and physical landscape of Jane Austen's tale of romance in late 18th century England.
and Prejudice is Jean-Yves' third movie performance. In Bride
of the Wind (2001), a film about Alma Mahler, he both played
the piano and made a cameo appearance. In 1996 he played two Impromptus
by Franz Schubert in "Portrait of a Lady", a film based on
the novel by Henry James.
Pride and Prejudice is Dario Marianelli's first Academy Award Nomination. Born in Pisa (Italy) and educated in Florence and London, he has composed music for five movies, but he made his mark as a movie music composer with The Brothers Grimm, released in 2005. Dario has also written music for many feature films, TV dramas, documentaries, animations, theatre, contemporary dance and concerts.
