Cédric Tiberghien piano

Cage Sonatas and Interludes for prepared piano 75′
(ends approx. 5.20pm)

John Cage’s captivating piano cycle was first performed in 1948, the year of the first Aldeburgh Festival. Hisreimagination of the possibilities of the solo keyboard – simultaneously playful and profound – continues to fascinate, challenge and delight. Cage’s ingenious additions to the mechanism of the instrument spring endless sonic surprises.

For Cédric Tiberghien, Cage is an increasingly central creative figure. Having first performed what he calls this ‘extraordinary masterpiece’ as recently as 2016 he is already a persuasive and dynamic interpreter.
