Cédric Tiberghien piano
DEBUSSY Preludes Books I and II
Cédric Tiberghien’s poetic sensibility and perfect technique are the ideal match for the wonders of Claude Debussy’s Preludes. These miraculous pieces reinvent the piano: instead of a machine of hammers and strings, it is an infinitely colourful instrument of mysterious liquid depths and transparency. Debussy’s imagination is sometimes whimsical, sometimes savage and always surprising: the 24 Preludes depict everything from fairies to fireworks, each a tiny detonation of quiet radicalism.
Tiberghien has been immersed in the sound of French music, of course, but his interests range further afield to the jazz of Keith Jarrett and Björk, both impressionists in their own way.
What makes this musician different? As The Age says, “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.”
Tiberghien’s combination of thoughtfulness and virtuosity has earned him a busy career on the international touring circuit, making him a regular visitor to prestigious orchestras and halls. He now returns to Melbourne Recita Centre: the ideal place to discover the dazzling worlds of Debussy through Tiberghien’s mastery.
