March 2010 Cover Story

THIBAUDET and his “GLORIOUS GERSHWIN”

In its March 2010 cover story, BBC Music calls Jean-Yves’ newest CD release “GLORIOUS GERSHWIN!” – in effect anointing the celebrated French pianist as today’s foremost interpreter of America’s most famous composer AND affirming what FanFaire has always maintained of this most adventurous of classical artists.

The Gershwin CD was released in the US on April 27, a few days after his LA Philharmonic concert with today’s SUPERCONDUCTOR and LA Phil Music Director Gustavo Dudamel. In May, they embark on a US tour, bringing Bernstein’s Age of Anxiety to San Francisco, Nashville, Washington, New York and Newark (NJ).
