Notes and Editorial Reviews

Well known for his interpretations of the works of Frédéric Chopin and Serge Rachmaninov, appearing on concert platforms the world over, the great Argentinian pianist Nelson Goerner is joining the Zig-Zag Territoires label. “Obviously, from the performer of these pieces - of all the pieces on this [album] - one will expect mastery and sensitivity. But even more is necessary: gifts of a colourist; an imagination of the settings; a vision of the sound planes and space. And also, for these pieces that are heirs to and the summary of such a glorious tradition, it also calls for broad knowledge and culture of the piano repertoire. The performer of the Etudes stands at the arrival of an itinerary, that of the keyboard "en blanc Read more et noir". He must know everything and play almost everything. Nelson Goerner is that performer.” (Dominique Jameux) Nelson Goerner is not only a world renowned soloist, he has performed with many of today’s major orchestras including the London Philharmonic and the Philharmonia Orchestra. A keen chamber musician, he has also collaborated with artists such as Martha Argerich, Janine Jansen, and Gary Hoffman. Read less
