On Debussy's Préludes

Due to a scheduling conflict, this concert must be postponed from 17 June to 25 June 2023. The programme will not be changed. Tickets already purchased will remain valid. If you are unable to attend, please contact boxoffice@tonhalle.ch.

A complete performance of the 24 Préludes, which Debussy published in two booklets, lasts about 90 minutes. It is a somewhat Herculean action, which at the same time demands a great deal of pianistic lightness - and thus a case for the Frenchman Jean-Yves Thibaudet, who knows exactly how to make these Préludes glitter and float. He once said that he dreams of singing the piano, "the voice, that is the real music, everything else is an imitation of it". In this concert, he will again do everything he can to come as close as possible to his ideal.
