Biography

Described by Gramophone 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. Tiempo established his international credentials at an early age, making his professional debut at the age of fourteen at the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam. A tour of the USA and a string of engagements across Europe quickly followed. Since then he has appeared with many of the world’s leading orchestras and conductors and is a frequent guest at major festivals worldwide.
Born in Caracas, Venezuela, Tiempo began his piano studies with his mother, Lyl Tiempo, at the age of two and made his concert debut when he had just turned three. Whilst at the Fondazione per il Pianoforte in Como, Italy, he worked with Dimitri Bashkirov, Fou Tsong, Murray Perahia and Dietrich Fischer - Dieskau. He has received frequent musical guidance and advice from Martha Argerich, Nelson Freire and Nikita Magaloff and performs regularly with fellow - countryman and friend Gustavo Dudamel including concerts with the Simón Bolívar Orchestra.
Recent concerto highlights for Tiempo have included return visits to the Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France in Paris and on tour to his native South America, a European tour with the Buenos Aires Philharmonic Orchestra, the Singapore Symphony and the Music Days in Lisbon Festival, as well as debuts with the BBC Symphony, City of Birmingham Symphony, Royal Northern Sinfonia, Zurich Chamber Orchestra, Brussels Philharmonic Orchestra, Orquestra Nacional do Porto, Queensland Symphony Orchestra and the Auckland Philharmonia. Notable recital engagements have included a sell - out recital debut at the Queen Elizabeth Hall in London in the International Piano Series, debuts at the Vienna Konzerthaus, London’s Wigmore Hall, the Berlin Philharmonie and Edinburgh International Festival as well as return visits to the Oslo Chamber Music Festival and the Warsaw Chopin Festival. He has also toured Seoul, Italy and South America extensively.
