I noticed this disc as a Gramophone Magazine Editor's Choice for April described as 'a record in a thousand'. I couldn't find details here but available from Crotchet UK.

Also awarded to Lutoslawski Orchestral Works vol 2 Chandos

Another young pianist on Avanti worth investigating.... Where does the company come up with them?

He's not a complete unknown. Here are a few recordings he's made (info from Intermusica's site):

"Sergio Tiempo has made a number of highly distinctive and acclaimed recordings. On EMI Classics’ 'Martha Argerich Presents' label, he recorded Mussorgsky Pictures at an Exhibition, Ravel Gaspard de la Nuit and three Chopin Nocturnes, and for Deutsche Gramophon he has recorded several discs with Mischa Maisky, including a disc of Rachmaninov which was awarded five stars by Classic FM and the BBC Music Magazine, which also named it their benchmark recording."

I have the EMI recital--the man definitely has some jaw-dropping technique and a fine imagination, too.
