"So few players these days are capable of such subtle nuance or such honest sentiment."
- Joseph Magil, AMERICAN RECORD GUIDE, July/Aug., 2007
"Suave, debonair, and sincere, [Thibaud’s] art was an extension of his personality; therefore, while he had numerous pupils, he had no stylistic heir. Thibaud’s playing is immediately recognizable and he can be mistaken for no one else. He also had an air of belonging to an earlier time….Like his friend Georges Enescu, Thibaud had a vocabulary of slides and ways of sneaking up on a note that today’s virtuosos would profit from studying. These expressive devices contributed to an erotic quality in Thibaud’s playing that, paradoxically, is missing in our modern world of tawdry sexual display."
