The Vancouver Chopin Society presents  Nelson Goerner, piano

Those who attended Nelson Goerner’s last Vancouver appearance with the Chopin Society will remember his staggering performance of Beethoven’s “Hammerklavier” Sonata. So it is no wonder that Gramophone magazine awarded the pianist’s recording of the work its sought-after “Editor’s Choice.”

In an eloquent review, Le Monde writes, “Majestic in Chopin, unquestionable in Debussy, the Argentinian pianist Nelson Goerner is one of those discreet artists whose career is immense.”

His activities as concerto soloist, recitalist, as well as a chamber musician have taken him to the world’s major musical capitals, and legendary performing spaces including the Musikverein, Concertgebouw, South Bank Centre, Wigmore Hall and the Teatro Colón, to name just a few. He also enjoys a long association with the Chopin Institute in Warsaw, where he has explored the performance of Chopin on contemporary pianos by Pleyel and Erard from 1848 and 1849. His recording of the Ballades and Nocturnes on a period instrument created a sensation in the recording industry and was a winner of the Diapason d’Or. His recordings of works by Debussy, Liszt, Schumann, Rachmaninoff, and Busoni have also been critically acclaimed as well as winners of recording awards.

Nelson Goerner, described as "a stratospheric pianist and a musician of pure genius", returns to Vancouver with a formidable program of Brahms, Beethoven, Schumann, and Chopin!
