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.

Recent and future concerto appearances include the Berliner Philharmoniker, London and San Francisco Symphony Orchestras as well as performances of Messiaen’s Turangalîla with the Orchestre de Paris. Cédric has a very strong relationship with the Wigmore Hall in London. In addition to several chamber projects, he will be performing a complete Beethoven Variation cycle there over the next two seasons. Other solo recitals include the Philharmonie Halls in both Paris and Berlin and he will join violinist Alina Ibragimova and the Doric Quartet for a chamber project in Europe. In Spring 2019 the Théâtre des Bouffes du Nord (Paris) presented the premiere of Zauberland (Magic Land). In this music theatre project staged by Katie Mitchell, Schumann’s Dichterliebe is performed alongside a new work by Bernard Foccroulle, setting a text by Martin Crimp. Cédric collaborated on this project with soprano Julia Bullock and further engagements this season include New York, Moscow, London and Brussels.

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. He has been awarded four Diapason d’Or, for his solo recordings on Hyperion. He also has many concerto and recital discs released 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).
