Notes & Reviews:

One of today's most sought-after performers, the Argentine pianist Nelson Goerner brings his love of Beethoven and Chopin to the Verbier Festival in Switzerland, and presents very personal interpretations of two important sonatas and two études. His rare talent was spotted by Martha Argerich, thanks to whom he was awarded a grant for further study in Argentina and Europe. He is now established as one of the most remarkable pianists of his generation.

"If you want these sonatas on DVD, you really need to look no further. Nelson Goerner clearly has attained his maturity as an artist, and I suspect he will be giving us much to think about in the future."-Fanfare

MusicWeb International
There are two main works, both sonatas. The first is Chopin's B minor. Goerner, forty years of age at the time, plays with mature directness and intelligence. There are no idiosyncrasies, no peculiarities of accent or rhythm or chording or colour. Musically things are fine, not least in the Scherzo and the somewhat understated but highly effective slow movement. The finale is powerful, cogent and finely judged. He plays two encores - a brilliantly executed C sharp minor Etude and the opus companion in A flat major. The other sonata is Beethoven's Les Adieux, which is perhaps rather more direct a reading than the Chopin but shares with it an unselfconscious directness that doesn't spurn emotion but doesn't indulge it either.
