To be fair, there are several French players whom I admire but have not heard enough to either include in or dismiss from this selection: among them Michel Chapuis and Michel Bouvard, the latter of whom taught Nathan Laube in Toulouse last year - indeed, Laube was awarded a Fulbright scholarship to study with him. I have yet to hear a note from Messrs Bardon et Bardon, except for David's videos, upon which I do not think it is fair to judge them (although I think trying to play Mendelssohn at S.Maximin is lunacy!).
Recent graduates of the Paris Conservatoire have not impressed. I think Thierry Escaich's performance at the Proms this year was a disaster and what else I've heard of him has been little better.
