A graduate of the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique in Paris, Cédric Tiberghien has established a truly international career, particularly applauded for his versatility as demonstrated by his wide-ranging repertoire, creative programming, an openness to explore innovative concert formats, and his dynamic chamber music partnerships. A regular guest in the world’s most prestigious venues, this French pianist “can transform from a virtuoso into a magician with an airy touch and a poetic clarity that brings chills to the spine” (Le Soir, Brussels).

AROHI ENSEMBLE

Led by Paul Livingstone, Los Angeles based sitarist and one of the few American disciples of the legendary Pt. Ravi Shankar and Pt. Rajeev Taranath, the ‘ragajazz’ of the Arohi Ensemble weaves the melodically and rhythmically intricate ragas of India and the counterpoint of chamber music into a unique sound, all in the spirit of improvisation. These leading virtuosi from India, Venezuela, and Los Angeles collaborate on a fascinating and exhilarating synthesis of global music traditions: Indian classical music, Western classical music, and jazz.

Works by Beethoven, Brahms, Schumann, and Kurtág

First Prize Winner at the 1991 Géza Anda International Piano Competition in Zürich, Dénes Várjon is following the footsteps of the great András Schiff as one of today’s most gifted Hungarian musicians. His artistic activities have included collaborations with such distinguished conductors as Sir Georg Solti, Sándor Végh, Iván Fischer, Heinz Holliger, Horst Stein, and Zoltán Kocsis as well as appearances at the international festivals of Marlboro, Salzburg, and Edinburgh. London’s Classical Music Magazine comments, “It is rare to hear such jaw-dropping virtuosity placed so modestly and so intuitively at the service of music.”

In 2004 five outstanding Armenian instrumentalists formed the Cadence Ensemble with the intention to promote the music of Astor Piazzolla. Following an enthusiastic response by the public and press, they continually expanded their repertoire and rapidly developed into what they are known for today: one of the world’s premier ensembles performing original works and arrangements by classical and contemporary European, Russian, Armenian, and American composers including world music and pop while maintaining an affinity for Piazzolla. The ensemble has given acclaimed performances in numerous countries around the world in prestigious venues such as the Teatro Colón in Buenos Aires and the Mariinsky Theatre in Saint Petersburg.

FRANCESCO PIEMONTESI

Works by J.S. Bach, Rachmaninoff, and Debussy 

Born in Locarno, Switzerland, and a protégé of the great Alfred Brendel, Francesco Piemontesi rose to international prominence after winning prizes at several major competitions including the 2007 Queen Elisabeth in Brussels. In his fast risingcareer he has already performed as soloist with many leading orchestras under such noted conductors as Vladimir Ashkenazy, Zubin Mehta, Marek Janowski, Charles Dutoit, and Sir Roger Norrington. “His recitals and recordings attest to an artistry which is world-class in its mature refinement” (The Independent, London) and display “a combination of meticulous technical assurance and nearly philosophical introspection” (Musical America).
