Cédric Tiberghien is a French pianist who has established a truly international career. Performances this season include his debuts with the Berliner Philharmoniker, San Francisco Symphony, DSO Berlin and NDR Elbphilharmonie Orchestra. His solo recitals include London, Chicago and Tokyo, and with violinist Alina Ibragimova at the Vienna Konzerthaus and on tour to Japan and Korea. He will also perform at the Beethoven Haus in Bonn with viola player Tabea Zimmermann. In Spring 2019 the Théâtre des Bouffes du Nord (Paris) will present the premiere of Zauberland (Magic Land). This music theatre project, staged by Katie Mitchell, will see Schumann’s Dichterliebe performed alongside a new work by Bernard Foccroulle, setting a text by Martin Crimp. This work will be performed by Cédric and soprano Julia Bullock.
During the 2017/18 season Cédric returned to the London Symphony Orchestra and Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestras. He also undertook an extensive tour to Asia including solo and duo recitals, the latter with Alina Ibragimova. Their numerous performances that season included the Pierre Boulez Saal (Berlin) and Wigmore Hall (London). Cédric has a particularly strong relationship with the latter, where he a performed a total of five times during the season, in both solo and duo recital.
Cédric recently presented a major focus on the music of Bartok, culminating in a three-volume exploration of his solo piano works for the Hyperion label which has received huge critical acclaim. He has been awarded four Diapason d’Or, for his solo recordings on Hyperion. His solo discography also includes concerto and recital discs on Harmonia Mundi.
He is a dedicated chamber musician, with regular partners including violinist Alina Ibragimova, violist Antoine Tamestit and baritone Stéphane Degout. Cédric’s passion for chamber music is reflected in numerous recordings: his discography with Alina includes complete cycles of music by Schubert, Szymanowski and Mozart (Hyperion) and a Beethoven Sonata cycle (Wigmore Live).
