THIS PERFORMANCE TOOK PLACE IN 2009 BRAHMS Klavierstücke, Op.76 LISZT La Vallée d'Obermann (from Années de Pèlerinage, book 1) BARTÓK 3 Songs from the District of Csík BARTÓK 6 Bulgarian Danses (from Mikrokosmos Vol. VI) BARTÓK 6 Danses Populaires Roumaines BRAHMS 10 Hungarian Dances Cédric Tiberghien is one of the most exciting artists to emerge from France in recent years.Internationally, Tiberghien's career rapidly came to prominence when he won the 1998 Long-Thibaud Competition in Paris and since then he has performed in the great concert halls in Europe and America, with an impressive line up of international orchestras and conductors. He has made acclaimed recordings of Brahms, Chopin and Debussy and is known particularly for his interpretations of the Romantic repertoire. Liszt’s La Vallée d’Obermann is the longest piece in the Années de Pèlerinage collection and is the most emotionally intense, its initial melancholy transforming through pensive contemplation to reach a dramatic climax. In the second half of the concert Tiberghien explores Bartók and Brahms’s contrasting approaches to Hungarian folk music. The concert finishes at approximately 9.15pm
