Jean-Yves Thibaudet on Saint-Saëns' Piano Concerto No. 5 - The Egyptian

January 13, 2015 - Famed pianist and friend of the LA Phil Jean-Yves Thibaudet took a moment when he visited the Hollywood Bowl in 2012 to discuss what he enjoys about playing Saint-Saëns' "Egyptian" piano concerto, including the tricks he uses to evoke the strange sounds near the beginning of the piece. The pianist joins the LA Phil for an all-French program under the baton of Lionel Bringuier in his last subscription concerts as the LA Phil's first-ever Resident Conductor.
