Cédric Tiberghien, Enrique Mazzola and the Orchestre National d’Île-de-France’s disc of Beethoven is now available. The disc features Cédric as soloist in Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 1, alongside Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5. Speaking about the concerto, Cédric said: “Beethoven’s 1st Piano Concerto is full of Haydn’s brilliance: we want to emphasise its freshness, spontaneity, and transparency.”
