French conductor Ludovic Morlot is in his fifth season as Music Director of the Seattle Symphony. There have been many highlights during his first four seasons in this position, including an exhilarating performance at Carnegie Hall in May 2014, as reported in The New York Times: "The performance Mr. Morlot coaxed from his players was rich with shimmering colours and tremulous energy.”
Artist in residence, pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet is considered one of the best pianists in the world, and has the rare ability to combine poetic musical sensibilities with dazzling technical prowess.
Jean-Yves Thibaudet’s performance is generously underwritten by Sheila B. Noonan and Peter M. Hartley.
