Cédric Tiberghien is a French pianist who has established a truly international career. He has been particularly applauded for his versatility, as demonstrated by his wide-ranging repertoire, interesting programming, an openness to explore innovative concert formats and his dynamic chamber music partnerships. Concerto appearances in the 2022-23 season include his debut with the Sao Paulo State Symphony Orchestra and return visits to NSO Washington (Karina Canellakis) and Sydney Symphony Orchestras. He will also perform Messiaen’s Turangalila Symphony with both the Berliner Philharmoniker (Simone Young) and Orchestre National de France (Cristian Macelaru). His recital appearances with Alina Ibrabimova include the Wigmore Hall in London, Sao Paulo and Philadelphia and he will perform with Antoine Tamestit in both Madrid and Prague. Cédric’s solo recitals will include London, Paris and performances of John Cage’s 16 Sonatas and Interludes for Prepared Piano in Australia. The latter is a collaboration with the percussion artist Matthias Schack-Arnott who is creating a kinetic installation in response to this piece. The project will receive its world premiere performance at the Perth Festival. Cédric’s most recent recording includes the Ravel Concertos with Les Siècles/Roth, which has attracted superlative critical acclaim, including the accolade of ‘Editor’s Choice’ in Gramophone Magazine. This CD was released by Harmonia Mundi, for whom Cédric is currently recording the complete Beethoven Variations. Cédric has been awarded five Diapason d’Or, for his solo and duo recordings on Hyperion; his most recent solo project being a three-volume exploration of Bartok’s piano works.
As a dedicated chamber musician, Cédric’s regular partners include violinist Alina Ibragimova, violist Antoine Tamestit and baritone Stéphane Degout.
