Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Jean-Yves Thibaudet is not a pianist to be pigeonholed. Alongside the recordings of his fellow countrymen Debussy and Ravel, he has recorded a tribute to a jazz giant, Conversations with Bill Evans, and he plays on the soundtrack of the film Portrait of a Lady. Perhaps this catholic approach accounts for the freshness of his Debussy playing. Not for him the "stick the pedal down and make an impressionistic wash of sound" approach. His playing is clean and refreshing without losing any of the voluptuous sensuality of Debussy at his most beguiling. There are lollipops to be found among the extensive repertory on these two discs, including the celebrated "Clair de Lune" from the Suite Bergamasque and the "Golliwogg's Cake-Walk" from Children's Corner. The mainstay of the release is the two sets of Images and the two books of Études, 12 studies whose demands are not for the faint of heart. Luckily for us, Thibaudet's heart is strong. He offers virtuosic, thoughtful performances of pieces that, while written to help develop pianists' technique, stand up magnificently as music to be listened to. --Keith Clarke

Highly recommended and definitely a set worthy of being investigated by pianophiles.
Vincent Lau
It is necessary to hear Thibaudet perform his countryman's pieces flawlessly and with such passion and vigor.

If you are interested in a complete set of Debussy piano works definitely get Vol.1 too.

Jean-Yves Thibaudet may not be the ideal pianist for every kind of music that he plays. His Rachmaninoff is disappointingly tepid and his Chopin uninteresting. His Liszt recordings, while being technically assured, often lacks a sense of abandon and frisson (or should I say "showmanship") which, in my view, is an indispensable element in that kind of music, and his Schubert (as heard in the soundtrack for <The Portrait of a Lady>) sounds contrived and mannered.
However, he is definitely a force to be reckoned with in his native French repertoire, as shown by his marvellous traversal of Ravel's piano pieces in 1992, a set which has won lots of accolades and unanimous praise from critics. He then embarked on a project to record all the solo piano works of Debussy and, in 1996, released the first instalment thereof, a 2-CD set which includes the Preludes, Estampes and Pour le piano. While these recordings aren't able to efface one's memory of the legendary recordings of Walter Gieseking, they're convincing interpretations which further confirm Thibaudet's stature in this repertoire.
Decca has now released the 2nd (and concluding) volume of Debussy's solo piano pieces with Thibaudet, and the results are, if anything, even better. As Thibaudet employs the pedal comparatively sparingly, he doesn't perhaps command the magically luminous and shimmering tone which is the hallmark of Gieseking's Debussy recordings (as can be heard in a 4-CD set released by EMI).

Format: Audio CD
This pair of discs was recorded between 1994-1998 and offers a very clean listening experience. The discs also offer a generous playing time at 151 minutes.

Thibaudet has a technical capability that renders all the technical challenges of these works as of no apparent consequence. This even applies to the very demanding books of etudes. Consequently the finger-work is immaculately controlled in terms of evenness of touch and rhythm with every gradation of dynamics and tempo precisely calculated and delivered with great accuracy. This is playing that exceeds many other fine pianists on a purely technical level.

Interpretively Thibaudet seems to take the line that, to a very large degree, the music if played accurately will speak for itself. To an extent this is certainly true insofar as inaccurate playing will hinder any such communication. However, there are other ways of playing this music that are emotionally more interactive. The admired and award winning recent set of the complete works by Bavouzet is a case in point. He too plays with great precision, but there is also a degree of warmth that is appears not to be on Thibaudet's agenda. These distinctions are a matter of listener's perception of course as neither pianist has been asked to express in words the balance between his emotional and technical responses to Debussy's music.

Bearing in mind that both Bavouzet and Thibaudet play with equal technical facility, I would suggest that the main difference lies in their emotional response. Thibaudet has a degree of Gallic restraint or coolness that is not apparent in the warmer approach of Bavouzet.

Again, thank you to my Amazon friend Amy for another exceptional recommendation.

Jean-Yves Thibaudet, the virtuoso pianist, was awarded his country's highest musical award in 2007, France's prestigious Victoire D'Honneur, a lifetime achievment award in what is, essentially, France's Grammy Awards. And rightfully so; he is a wonder, a masterful performer and a passionate interpretor of the works which he plays.
Here, Thibaudet completes Debussy's repetoire of solo piano work by following up Complete piano works, Vol. 1 with the remaining works for solo piano composed by Claude Debussy, one of the master French Impressionsists.
Offered on this double disc set are 16 (13 were included on Volume 1) compositions by Debussy. All are amazing and the collection is worth every penny. Any fan of Debussy, the impressionists, late romantic classical or turn of the century (20th) classical, should own both this and Volume 1. It is necessary to hear Thibaudet perform his countryman's pieces flawlessly and with such passion and vigor.
Debussy was a non-conformist and a lot of what he did, although it could have been labeled in a standard manner, was classified in a strange or contrary fashion. For example, his 'Piano Concerto' was called 'Fantasy for Piano and Orchestra'. Most of what he wrote could be considered tone poems, but he never used that moniker; Debussy sought to place pictures or scenes in the mind of the listener, using just music; he wrote tone poems. But, yes, he was unorthodox.
