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...

-- Gramophone [8/1996]

-----------------------

...Thibaudet extracts an almost unprecedented range of timbres, with harmonies often being allowed to merge most intoxicatingly. It is not a matter of Thibaudet simply slamming his foot down but rather his judicious handling of half-pedallings and the third pedal coupled
Read more with a virtually obsessive attention to the minutiae of the score... Thibaudet’s punctiliousness and ability to evoke an aural kaleidoscope provide countless magical moments...
