Notes & Reviews:

Described by Le Monde de la Musique as having "the soul of a poet," Alexander Gurning is one of the most original and accomplished musicians of his generation. Equally at ease in classical, jazz, or contemporary music, he studied at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels and the Moscow Conservatory. He rose to fame as a pianist in the acclaimed Soledad ensemble, after receiving many awards for his first solo recital in the "Martha Argerich Presents" series. He now returns to the core of the classical music repertoire with a fascinating recording of Bach's Goldberg Variations. The artist toured the work extensively in Europe to great acclaim before tackling the recording sessions.
