Musical fireworks abound as Grammy-nominated French pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet visits with the Czech Philharmonic and conductor Jirí Belohlávek, who makes his U.S. debut. One of today’s most sought-after soloists, Jean-Yves Thibaudet has the rare ability to combine poetic musical sensibilities with dazzling technical prowess and a talent for coaxing subtle and surprising colors and textures from each work he plays.

Founded in 1896, the Czech Philharmonic has represented the pinnacle of Czech cultural achievement for more than a century. The orchestra has received numerous awards and nominations, including ten Grands Prix du Disque de l'Académie Charles Cros, five Grand Prix du Disque de l'Académie Française, several Cannes Classical Awards, a position in Gramophone magazine’s “Top 20 Best Orchestras in the World” (2008), as well as nominations for Grammy and Gramophone awards.
