Notes and Editorial Reviews

The remarkably gifted French pianist Cedric Tiberghien turns to the music of Bela Bartok in a wide-ranging program that includes the famous Op. 14 Suite and the sixth book of the Mikrokosmos project. This final book is the most ferocious in its technical demands, but Tiberghien readily meets its demands.

Reviews:

One of the most remarkable aspects of Tiberghien's interpretations is that they are refreshingly free of those aggressive attacks that used to pass for 'Bartok style'. He never overplays, yet there's ample dynamic variety, scrupulous attention to articulation and plenty of rhythmic verve. He is clearly a committed Bartok player, whose fresh ideas are remarkably
Read more consistent with the letter and spirit of the Hungarian master.

– – Gramophone

Tiberghien has an expressive way with Bartók. Even in music that often uses the piano as a percussive instrument, his attack is never angular or dry; instead, it’s warm, personal and spacious, with a flux to the rhythms that sounds totally organic. Tiberghien is capable of magicking up vivid character within seconds.
