5.0 out of 5 stars Thibaudet, Super-Virtuoso Conveys the Voice of Opera Through His Finger's!, Oct. 26 2007
This review is from: Aria: Opera Without Words (Audio CD)
Jean-Yves-Thibaudet's inner love for the capabilities of the human voice and his close associationship with some of the world's greatest singers such as Renee Fleming, has allowed him to convey the greatest operatic arias from the keyboard. In this CD Thibaudet has the remarkable resources of Randy Kerber, Percy Grainger, Mikhashoff, Sgambati and Louis Brassin coming together and writing transcriptions for these works that are to be hallmarked and treasured forever! These precious collaborations may well be a once in a lifetime experience! Being a super-virtuoso pianist, Thibaudet opens our ears, minds and souls to playing that is engulfed by overwhelming emotional feelings seldom ever demonstrated. He is one of very few that has the ability to take control of the horrific technical demands such as those found in the "Humming Chorus" from Mikhashoff's arrangements entitled "Portrait of Madame Butterfly" based on Puccini's opera. In "Vissi d'arte" from Tosca Thibaudet virtually lives the words of the diva's impassioned cries, "I lived for art, I lived for love," through his finger's. When one considers Thibaudet's blistering concert schedule it is blessing of the highest order that this monumental project actually culminated and breathtakingly succeeded! As Jean-Yves Thibaudet continues to amaze audiences around the world with his delicate touch, inimitable sound and technical virtuosity, deep within his heart lives the soul of a singer!
