Jean-Yves Thibaudet

Carte Blanche (CD)

To mark a milestone birthday and celebrate a new chapter in his relationship with the label, Thibaudet was given “carte blanche” by Decca to choose personal music that he has never recorded before—a selection that reflects on the people and pieces that have impacted his life as an artist while expanding his already diverse repertoire in new directions.

“I have made many recordings of mainstream repertoire,” says Thibaudet, “so I wanted to do something more personal and intimate. These are pieces I love deeply – some I’ve played for my whole life – and each one reflects a special moment for me, has a story.”
