La Jolla Music Society presents Season 44

La Jolla Music Society opens its latest Frieman Family Piano Series with an all-Debussy program from Jean-Yves Thibaudet, 8 p.m. Friday, Nov. 2 at Sherwood Auditorium in the Museum of Contemporary Art, 900 Prospect St.

One of today’s most sought-after soloists, Thibaudet has the rare ability to combine poetic musical sensibilities with dazzling technical prowess. According to The New York Times, “every note he fashions is a pearl … the joy, brilliance and musicality of his performance could not be missed.”

Highlights from the concert will include “Suite Bergamasque” and “L’isle Joyeuse.”

Thibaudet was born in Lyon, France, where he began his piano studies at age five and made his first public appearance at age seven. At 12, he entered the Paris Conservatory to study with Aldo Ciccolini and Lucette Descaves, a collaborator of Ravel.

At age 15, he won the Premier Prix du Conservatoire and, three years later, won the Young Concert Artists Auditions in New York City. Thibaudet’s musical depth and charisma have underlined a career with global impact, including 30 years of performing around the world and 40 recorded albums.

Tickets, $25-$75, are available through the box office, (858) 459-3728 or online at
