Notes and Editorial Reviews

[Thibaudet's] control of quiet dynamics and sonorities in "Feuilles mortes" (first disc, track 2) and "Des pas sur la neige" (first disc, track 6) is superfine and marks him out as a player of class. Technically, he is exceptionally cultivated and his virtuosity can be thrilling when mercurial successions of colour and rapid movement exert a special challenge...
