Thierry de Brunhoff plays Chopin -- Complete Nocturnes

Michael Viens Music

I had the great honor and privilege of studying with Thierry de Brunhoff when I was a young student in Paris in the mid-1970s. I would go for my lessons on his "pacquebot" near Neuilly-sur-Seine. I AM SO GRATEFUL for those days. Such wonderful memories that sustain me now.... Touched by greatness that is so inspiring.... I am glad that this CD has been uploaded for the World to be touched by Chopin and this great interpreter of that Music.... Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.

Thierry de Brunhoff was and remains the greatest Chopin interpreter of all times. He doesn't bring bold rubatos as all other pianists do. This make him 'swinging'. He never overlooks the dance, always behind the scene with Chopin. For infos, he gave up very soon, in the 80's, being a professional pianist to become a monk. Maybe he's reading our lines right now. I studied the harmony at Paris with Loïc Malié, who was a friend of him. One day, in the classroom, we were talking about great pianists. Horowitz was about coming to play in Paris. Loïc was quite laudatory about him. He asked me my opinion. I was 20, cheeky and answered : - I dont like him. At all. He really doesn't know how to play Chopin ! - what ? Horowitz ? Not knowing play Chopin ? But what do you know about piano Laurent ? You're a tiny little presumptuous musician that says anything, Horowitz is the greatest living pianist ! At this point I had some pain not crying. My heart was beating so strong. Loïc Malié had been a Messiaen student. It was one life's shame. - sorry Sir, but I dont like him... - but who do you like then ? - er... I dont know if you know him, he's almost unknown with respect to Horowitz... He's called Thierry de Bruhnoff... I think I bent the head, ready for another 'slap' (Loïc was a lovely, funny, friendly person, generous, available) - ah, Laurent, I agree with you Thierry de Brunhoff is Chopin reborn... Gosh ! The bullet just passed close to me !

Discovering Thierry de Brunhoff is like coming upon a rare and beautiful flower. His soul and the soul of Chopin merge as two streams joining to form a river. His beautiful sounds full of poetry, nobility, eloquence, and passion weave a magical web which one is drawn into and consumed by. I hope he is aware of the appreciation of so many listeners. I can only say thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Elégance très française par un jeu jamais outrancier et sans l'aspect métronomique de son maître Cortot .Thierry de Brunhoff joue ou plutôt incarne Chopin avec ce je ne sais quoi d'âme venue de là-bas , du temps, de l'espace, du divin . C'est tout bonnement UNIQUE et vous envoûte de bout en bout comme un long voyage d'où l'on ne revient pas indemne .

Listening to Thierry de Brunhoff's rendition has allowed me to hear and appreciate Chopin's nocturnes like no other pianists have done before. There's beauty and purpose with every phrase, indeed every note, he plays. There's no forced drama by the pianist, but rather the listener is invited into his world or more precisely his heart. This is a gift of music, and through his music, communion with others. In that sense, listening to Brunhoff for me is more than a musical experience; it's also a spiritual one.

I'm also glad that I discovered him here just yesterday. I didn't even know about his existence, but now I'd put him straight to the top-5, because he understands Chopin. All the contemporary pianists I know are all too often just polishing/sugarcoating/perfectioning such music, i.e. reducing it to show-pieces really, often accompanied with facial yoga gymnastics. Thierry doesn't do that, he represents still the good old school of understanding Chopins music how it should be.

Thank you for sharing the profound music and information. I found that Chopin ended his life at the age of 39, and that Thierry de Brunhoff left the musical stage at the same age he finished recording his Nocturne, feeling the shortness and density of 39 years. I can't help but feel that his last music is quietly telling us that the end is never a sad thing.

about “to end up”discussion, I read Mr.Brunhoff’s comment somewhere on the internet, direct word or indirect one, I don’t remember, but the meaning of his saying was like this; I make a stop to give back all I've been given from God during past, this is the time. *Mr.Brunhoff’s grandfather, Jean also died of tuberculosis at 39.

@Tom Bretislow I don't disagree with your opinion that it is correct to say that Chopin did not end his life, but died of tuberculosis. my main point was that Therry de Brunhoff made his last recording at the age of 39 to match the age at which God called Chopin to die.I am sure Thierry de Brunhoff felt strongly about eternity and one day, and I think it is not only the excellence of the piano playing that moves us living under the pandemic of 21st century, but also the sense of eternity and one day.

AMAZING!!! Just wow! Maybe a little dramatic...but I can literally attune to the vibration of each key so intricately that I feel it healing my cells, releasing negative energy from my body...brings tears to my eyes. Literally melts me down like butter. The Guitar does the same thing. I do not play however I feel I mustve had a wild love affair some time ago in a different life...in a smoky cafe on the French country side...or maybe I used to wear long fancy gloves that pulled up just below my elbows and fancy ball gowns when Mum & Pop would force me to play for such dreadful stuffy blocks that I was insisted on calling Queen Regeant & Your Grace. After all, I was named Regina after Victoria. How the name followed is just amazing. Bravo sir, Bravo!! Thank you for allowing me a few moments to get dreamy with myself & drift of into another dream..Lucid as this one, not really? To be awakened on a world of sleep walking babies is almost as a cup of wine alone. Rather i think The Chardonnay would par the course much softer than just sober lonliness.. ah, a girl can dream tho right? So Romantic...Thank you sir.

bien dit--pourquoi je me suis demandée si c'en était un Pleyel, comme voulait toujours Chopin lui-même...Nous avons un de 1929 et comme ça chante avec douceur et richesse! C'est mon preferé pour les LIeder tous..

Agreed - the piano's tone is essential to this performanc's greatness. I could be wrong (I often am) but it doesn't sound like a concert Steinway to me (crisper timbre, not as much resonance in the bass)

Such a treasured gift, coming upon this site by accident today... I am 70 this year, and have worried all my life that I gave up too easily on my piano studies as a teenager, with barriers arising like financial cost and losing the one teacher who seemed able to facilitate my skills from my soul to my fingers... But I understand my journey now, thanks to Thierry's exquisite and spiritual rendition of the soul of Chopin. This is how I heard Chopin's compositions in my heart, my soul and my mind, but was not able to study and practise for long enough for it to come out through my fingers anywhere like this. I can understand why Thierry chose to leave the everyday world after these exquisite recordings. And I thank him from the bottom of my heart for making them, and for you putting them out there for us, where his gift belongs, forever at the pinnacle of the physical expression of his heart and soul, Chopin's heart and soul...a treasure, forever. I now feel free to return to humbly practising my Chopin, with a joyful soul and a light heart...a very special gift, indeed.

Thierry has a highly wonderful "musical approach" of Chopin, quite far away from the syrup-like romantico-sentimetalism which is a highly ridiculous "tradition" but also from a recent "constructivist" trend , which is al last as ridiculous. The actual Chopin lives in quite other regions, and Thierry understood it perfectly.

Such beautiful and sensitive playing. The music sings as if it were playing itself. Thierry de Brunhoff and Chopin are getting me through the long hours of the night when I can’t sleep after a heart operation.   It seems so sad that he became a monk at a young age, and deprived live audiences of his gifts. Perhaps he had recorded all he wanted and his God was obviously more important to him. I like the story told below of an organist who became a monk, then realised his talent was a gift from God that should be shared.

@Martin Guy Dinu Lipatti was very special and had a beautiful sound which could not be reproduced by any modern pianoforte known to me. I think he recorded on a Pleyel; I have played on several such old instruments myself. They possess a silvery and liquid like sound and although there are hints of it in some Bechsteins and Steinway 'B's the sounds, in the quantities of which I speak, are unique to Pleyels. Looking beneath the beauty of Lipatti's sound one finds a rather boring superficiality which grows with familiarity, There is no such superficiality in Brunhoff's playing. Quite the contrary. I am surprised, however, that some fool has not said he plays too slowly.

These are astonishing performances of Chopin’s Nocturnes, performed with the subtle discernment that Chopin preferred. The dynamics, tone, quality, subtlety, modesty, close reading of the score but very sophisticated (as opposed to academic). These are the ever elusive perfections one who plays Chopin is always searching for. I’m fascinated by his tone - just incredible. Chopin said that in the end it’s playing the music with a simplicity of style - whereby all the great many notes are synthesized into a calm, tasteful style,, with proper legato, no banging and no vulgar flourishes or excessive adornments. Thierry de Brunhoff was so brilliant.

@excelsior999 "Simplicity is the highest goal, achievable when you have overcome all difficulties. After one has played a vast quantity of notes and more notes, it is simplicity that emerges as the crowning reward of art." This is one version of this quote. There are several translations of the same sentiment. If you Google Chopin ‘s quotes you will find many interesting ones. There are a few excellent biographies of Chopin. Generally a version of this remark or a quote is included in order to distill Chopin ethos/sensibilities. I can’t think of the titles or authors off the top of my head but I’ll edit this comment when I have access to my bookshelves. You can also read Chopin’s letters that he wrote throughout his life, even as a teenager. As I say he despised banging, heavy-handing playing of his music. In his letters you can read his direct assessment of many of his contemporaries. He had a biting sense of humor and was quite a mimic. He had little patience for people (musicians) with bad taste or a lack refinement.

I totally agree. I wonder if you would be able to provide the source which contains the exact Chopin quote in which he describes how music should be played.  Interestingly, a well-respected music critic of the early 19th century expressed much the same sentiment when he complained that "the vanity of virtuosity" was ruining the way in Mozart's music was being played publicly.
