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 highlights have included performances with the Berliner Philharmoniker, Orchestre National de France, and London Symphony, Cleveland, Boston Symphony, Czech Philharmonic, Tokyo Philharmonic and NDR Elbphilharmonie orchestras. His conductor collaborations include Karina Canellakis, Nicholas Collon, Stéphane Denève, Edward Gardner, Enrique Mazzola, Ludovic Morlot, Matthias Pintscher, François-Xavier Roth and Simone Young.
Cédric has performed solo and chamber recitals throughout the world, including London, Paris, Tokyo, Sydney and New York. He has a particularly close relationship with the Wigmore Hall where he is performing the complete Beethoven variations juxtaposed with works by other composers, thus illustrating the evolution of the genre. This repertoire is also being recorded for harmonia mundi, and the first volume is already available. The same label has released the Ravel Concertos with Les Siècles/François-Xavier Roth, a release that has attracted superlative critical acclaim, including the accolade of ‘Editor’s Choice’ in Gramophone Magazine.
Cédric is a dedicated chamber musician. In addition to Xavier Phillips, his regular partners include violinist Alina Ibragimova, violist Antoine Tamestit and baritone Stéphane Degout. Alina and he first met as members of the BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artists scheme in 2005; they have since performed together at major international venues and have an extensive discography.
