Notes & Reviews:

Well known for his interpretations of the works of Frederic Chopin and Serge Rachmaninov, the great Argentinean pianist Nelson Goerner joins the Zig-Zag Territoires label with the piano works of Debussy.

American Record Guide, March/April 2014
This is an outstanding Debussy piano recital. The booklet notes by Domenique Jameux are excellent. The Estampes of 1903 are considered the first mature set of Debussy piano pieces that could be termed masterpieces. They make for a wonderful opening set: 'Pagodes', 'La SoirTe dans Grenade', and 'Jardins sous la Pluie' form a perfectly balanced and varied musical unit. He finds all of the subtle nuances and colors with a beautiful legato touch. The first book of Images followed chronologically in 1904-05. Etudes is enlightening to begin with 'Pour les degrTs chromatiques' rather than 'Pour les cinq doigts - d'apres M. Czerny'. This second book is more about sonority and suits Goerner's playing quite well. L'Isle Joyeuse is one of my favorite works, and one of the few I still remember hearing for the first time. It is a big, meaty work that is a favorite of pianists and audiences alike - a perfect ending to a great recital.
