A cosmopolitan Sunday child among pianists

Thibaudet is the cosmopolitan among the master pianists. NRC Handelsblad wrote about one of his last performances in the Master Pianists series: “With his way of making music, which is as transparent as it is flamboyant, Thibaudet opened the season in a way resembling a colorful fireworks display, which the audience will remember for a long time to come,” and continued with “. . . the inspired way in which Thibaudet manages to translate his clear analytical mind, this refined and refined pianistic and divine imagination, into completely convincing rebirths of familiar and less familiar notes.” With Thibaudet, the “flamboyant” is, of course, also to be found in his colorful appearance. Gianni Versace, Vivienne Westwood and other top designers made clothes for Thibaudet.
