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. Supported by the government of Bahia, this orchestra is part of the long-term educational program NEOJIBA (Núcleos Estaduais de Orquestras Juvenis e Infantis da Bahia). Over the last couple of years, it has been gaining acclaim in Europe for its engaging performances that consistently bring sold-out audiences in London, Berlin, and Geneva to their feet. “This orchestra is at the very tip of the powerful movement to inspire young kids through music and give them a future,” reported Radio Berlin Brandenburg.

Jean-Yves Thibaudet, "one of the best pianists of our time" (New York Sun), has the rare ability to combine poetic musical sensibilities with dazzling technical prowess. His talent at coaxing subtle and surprising colors and textures from even old favorites has led the New York Times to exclaim “…every note he fashions is a pearl…the joy, brilliance and musicality of his performance could not be missed.”
