YOUR GATEWAY TO OPERA AND CLASSICAL MUSIC
FANFAIRE celebrates CLASSICAL MUSIC!

ARIA: OPERA WITHOUT WORDS

CD-Aria-200February 2007 was a very special month for superstar pianist JEAN-YVES THIBAUDET. It began with the release of an album that celebrates once again and in his own unique way an enduring love affair with the human voice. And it ended in Paris with his acceptance of the honorific “Victoire d’Honneur” – the prestigious lifetime career achievement award given by the “Victoires de la Musique” (or the French Grammy, if you will).

FanFaire is proud to partner with Decca Records in a continuing celebration of Jean-Yves Thibaudet with a grand giveaway of 30 CDs of his latest album on the Decca label, “ARIA: opera without words.” Mr. Thibaudet has had a long-standing relationship with both Decca – as a recording artist, and FanFaire – as one of its most distinguished featured artists.

“ARIA” is a beautifully crafted album of piano transcriptions of some of the most beloved arias in the operatic repertoire – some arranged by Mr. Thibaudet himself – in which Thibaudet, opera lover joins Thibaudet, piano virtuoso and together they make exquisite music, with a passion and in a style that is so aesthetically and pleasurably gratifying… to the point of addiction. It is – oh! – so THIBAUDET!

[This GIVEAWAY ended on April 2, 2007 following Mr. Thibaudet's 3-day concert with the LA Philharmonic at the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, CA.]
