Introducing Cédric Tiberghien
Familiar to Australian audiences from appearances with the symphony orchestras, Cédric Tiberghien routinely impresses the critics. According to The Age’s Clive O’Connell, “Tiberghien leaps from the ruck of talented young pianists by making the music his own, taking you on to a plane where the interpreter’s craft is fully disposed to communicating the music’s fundamentals.”
Cédric Tiberghien’s flourishing international career takes him to some of the world’s most prestigious halls – to name but a few: Kennedy Centre in Washington, Carnegie Hall New York, Amsterdam Concertgebouw, Musikverein Vienna, Salzburg Mozarteum, Royal Albert Hall, Wigmore Hall, Barbican Hall and Queen Elizabeth Hall in London, Bechtsein Hall in Berlin, Salle Pleyel, Theatre des Champs-Elysees and Theatre du Chatelet in Paris, Sydney Opera and Tokyo’s Bunka Kaikan and Asahi halls.
With over 50 concertos in his repertoire, Cédric Tiberghien collaborates with an impressive line-up of orchestras, including the BBC Symphony, Sydney Symphony, Washington National Symphony, Budapest Festival Orchestra, Tokyo Philarmonic, NHK Symphony, Hamburger Philharmoniker, Orchestre de la Suisse Romande, and in France the Philharmonique de Radio-France, Orchestre de Paris, and the Orchestre National de France.
Cédric Tiberghien studied at the Paris Conservatoire with Frédéric Aguessy and Gérard Frémy and was awarded the Premier Prix in 1992, aged just 17. He was then a prizewinner at several major international piano competitions (Bremen, Dublin, Tel Aviv, Geneva, Milan), culminating with the 1st Prize at the prestigious Long-Thibaud Competition in Paris in 1998, alongside with five special awards, including the Audience Award and the Orchestra Award. This propelled on his international career, leading to over 150 engagements worldwide, including 7 visits to Japan and showcase appearances throughout Europe.
