Jean-Yves Thibaudet

For more than three decades Jean-Yves Thibaudet has performed worldwide, recorded more than 50 albums, and built a reputation as one of today’s finest pianists. From the start of his career, he has delighted in music beyond the standard repertoire, from jazz to opera, which he has transcribed himself. His profound professional friendships crisscross the globe and have led to spontaneous and fruitful collaborations in film, fashion, and visual art.

With a lifelong passion for education and fostering young musical talent, Thibaudet is the first-ever artist-in-residence at the Colburn School in Los Angeles. In 2017 the school announced the Jean-Yves Thibaudet Scholarships, funded by members of Colburn’s donor community, to provide aid for Music Academy students, whom Thibaudet selects for the merit-based awards regardless of their instrument choice.

Thibaudet’s recording catalogue has received two Grammy Award nominations, the Preis der Deutschen Schallplattenkritik, Diapason d’Or, Choc du Monde de la Musique, Edison Prize, and Gramophone awards. His most recent solo album, 2021’s Carte Blanche, features a collection of deeply personal pieces. He was the soloist on Wes Anderson’s 2021 film The French Dispatch, and can be heard in Pride and Prejudice, Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close, Wakefield, and the Oscar-winning Atonement. His concert wardrobe is designed by Vivienne Westwood.

In 2010 the Hollywood Bowl inducted Jean-Yves Thibaudet into its Hall of Fame. Previously a Chevalier of the Ordre des Arts et des Lettres, in 2012 he was given the Officier title by France’s Ministry of Culture, and he was named special representative for the promotion of French Creative and Cultural Industries in Romania in 2020. He is co-artistic advisor, with Gautier Capuçon, of the Festival Musique & Vin au Clos Vougeot.
