to Jean-Yves from his countrymen:
Le VICTOIRE D'HONNEUR
- a lifetime career achievement award
2007 was an eventful month in the life of Jean-Yves Thibaudet. The month that
saw the release of a CD album of music very dear to his heart and the bestowal
of an honor of a lifetime. The award is France's prestigious VICTOIRE D'HONNEUR
which Jean-Yves received in a special award ceremony held in Paris at the historic
Salle Pleyel. In fact, he opened the event with a performance of the last movement
of Gershwin's Concerto in F with a co-awardee, the Orchestre
National de France. The concerto was a fitting piece, American music being the
dominant theme of the evening.
Jean-Yves shared this exciting moment in a recent interview with FanFaire:
just received a very important and prestigious award in France. The French Grammies,
called "Les Victoires de la Musique", awarded me the "Victoire
d'Honneur", which is a lifetime career achievement!!! Usually people get
it later in life. Great honor for me, and so special to have that kind of recognition
from France, my own country.
"The award ceremony is annual, every year in a different city in France, and with a different orchestra. This year was particularly prestigious, being in Paris - in the beautiful, newly renovated Salle Pleyel that just reopened, and with our best orchestra the "Orchestre National de France.
"The ceremony was broadcast live on French national TV at prime time (8:30pm). I played the last movement of Gershwin's Concerto in F with the Orchestre National de France, and gave a speech... all very emotional!"
BRAVO! BRAVO! BRAVO!
