Jean-Yves Thibaudet

March 7, 2008

Two by Thibaudet

Pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet performs works both intimate and expansive on today's "Performance Today." From West Palm Beach, Florida, he'll offer a pair of etudes by Chopin. And we'll follow him to Geneva, Switzerland, where he plays Camille Saint-Saens'"Egyptian" Concerto with Bertrand de Billy and the Orchestra of the Suisse Romande.
