JYT returns to the Walt Disney Hall

December 24 2011

On January 5-8, 2012, Thibaudet returns to the Los Angeles Philharmonic at Walt Disney Concert Hall. With Miguel Harth-Bedoya conducting, the orchestra will play Dvorak’s Hussite Overture and Symphony No. 3, “Organ” by Saint-Saens. Thibaudet will join for Liszt’s Piano Concerto No. 2. Thibaudet began this season with a series of striking summer appearances at Tanglewood in which he played the complete piano works of Ravel in a week. He then embarked on a European tour with Charles Dutoit and the Philadelphia Orchestra. Continuing his love of exploring individual composers, Thibaudet performed a program of Liszt lieder and Brahms lieder with mezzo-soprano Angelika Kirchschlager in Europe, Boston and New York. Thibaudet also tours Europe with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, and the U.S. with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, playing Saint-Saëns. After a performance with the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra at Carnegie Hall on February 11, 2012, Thibaudet will conclude his season with Debussy recitals in Europe. These Debussy evenings celebrate the 150th anniversary of the composer’s birth.
