The Bahia Orchestra Project is a pioneer initiative in Brazil modeled on the Venezuelan “El Sistema.” It was founded in 2007 by the Brazilian pianist and conductor Ricardo Castro, who remains its artistic and general director. These amazing young musicians are transforming the lives of hundreds of children through their gift of teaching symphonic orchestra instruments. Everywhere they go, they win over new audiences with their exciting interpretations of traditional as well as contemporary music.
One of today’s most sought-after soloists, Jean-Yves Thibaudet has the rare ability to combine poetic musical sensibilities withdazzling technical prowess.
