Described by Gramophone magazine as “a colourist in love with the infinite variety a piano can produce”, Sergio Tiempo has developed a reputation as one of the most individual and thought-provoking pianists of his generation. He has appeared with many of the world’s leading orchestras and conductors and is a frequent guest at major festivals worldwide.
In June 2010, Tiempo gave the world premiere of a new work for two pianos and orchestra ‘Tango Rhapsody’ by Argentinean composer Federico Jusid with Karin Lechner and the RSI Lugano under Jacek Kaspszyk at the Martha Argerich Festival in Lugano, where he is a visitor each year. This will be released on CD in Spring 2012.
Tiempo’s latest CD is for Avanti Classics and comprises Liszt’s Totentanz & Tchaikovsky Concerto no. 1 with RSI Lugano and Ion Marin.
Highlights of the 2011/12 season and beyond include two return engagements with the Los Angeles Philharmonic with both Gustavo Dudamel and Nicholas McGegan, a European tour with the Buenos Aires Philharmonic Orchestra and debuts with the Zurich Chamber Orchestra, Brussels Philharmonic Orchestra as well as recital tours of Seoul, Italy and South America.
