Notes and Editorial Reviews

"As an introduction to Chopin Goerner's album would be hard to beat." - Jeremy Siepmann, BBC Music Magazine

"I have always preferred ‘live’ recording. I do not have a big experience in the recording studio (that may partly explain why) but somehow I don’t find it easy to have the necessary urge simply because the red light is on. With an audience at least there is a chance of things flowing more naturally, more freely from your inner self. You really want to communicate, you want everyone to sense that the particular piece you are playing at that moment is the thing that matters most to you. And often I feel that, in spite of all the things I did not want or that I would have wanted differently, it still
Read more sounds better to me than a studio recording." - Nelson Goerner
