Bartók: Mikrokosmos 5; Eight Improvisations on Hungarian Peasant Songs; Romanian Folk Dances; & more / Cédric Tiberghien, piano

Notes & Reviews:

This second album in Cédric Tiberghien's highly praised survey reveals the radicalism of Bartók's piano-writing to be just as evident in the early Bagatelles as it is in the lexicon of style and technique which is the fifth book of Mikrokosmos.

Magic moments are plentiful...One feels the weight of Tiberghien's thought in every phrase, yet the sense of easy flow is paramount.

BBC Music Magazine, December 2016
Intimate and poetic, this pianism which delicately suggests rather than making statements. A lovely hour and a quarter.

The Guardian, 17th November 2016
It's a measure of the quality of CTdric Tiberghien's series that it promises to rival Kocsis's set when complete...Tiberghien catches the essence of each piece instantly, and brings to all of them a sense of freshness and discovery, as well as the ability to combine expressive freedom with rhythmic precision in a remarkable way.

Gramophone Magazine, November 2016
A fine programme overall, much to be recommended.

MusicWeb International, 9th December 2016
Beautifully recorded ... beautifully played.
