Notes & Reviews:

The remarkably gifted French pianist Cédric Tiberghien turns to the music of Béla Bartók 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 is demands.

BBC Music Magazine, June 2016
Possessing an instinctive feel for impressionism, and for the ebb and flow of those rhythms with their little hesitations and sudden rushes forward, CTdric Tiberghien is ideally fitted for this task... the chief glory of this recording lies in what Tiberghien does with the Peasant Songs and the sixth book of Mikrokosmos. Each of the songs is sharply characterised, and the pulse throughout follows the heartbeat.

Gramophone Magazine, April 2016
One of the most remarkable aspects of Tiberghien's interpretations is that they are refreshingly free of those aggressive arracks 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 consistent with the letter and spirit of the Hungarian master.

Sunday Times, 10th April 2016
Tiberghien mixes fiery flair with charm and poetry in his readings of the final volume, and his beautifully coloured playing is equally compelling in the rest of the programme.

The Guardian, 24th March 2016
Tiberghien has an expressive way with Bart=k. 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.
