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.


Tiberghien’s previous disc included the sixth and final book of Mikrokosmos, the graded collection of teaching pieces that Bartók assembled between 1926 and 1939. Here his sequence ends with the previous book – less demanding, but still searching explorations of pianistic technique and musical comprehension. As with everything here, 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.  Andrew Clements
