Nelson Goerner

*1969 San Pedro

Born in 1969, one of the foremost pianists of his generation—an excellent soloist and esteemed chamber musician. He studied with Juan Carlos Arabián and Carmen Scalicione at the Buenos Aires Conservatory, and with Maria Tipo at the Geneva Conservatory (honours graduate). He won the Franz Liszt Piano Competition in Buenos Aires (1986) and the Geneva Piano Competition (1990). He performs regularly at the greatest concert venues across Europe, Japan and the Americas. He has worked with such ensembles and conductors as the Philharmonia, Deutsches Symphonie- Orchester Berlin and Andrew Davis, London Philharmonic Orchestra, Orchestre de la Suisse Romande under Neeme Järvi and Raphael Frühbeck de Burgos, Frans Brüggen’s Orchestra of the Eighteenth Century, and the NHK Symphony Orchestra of Tokyo. As a chamber musician, he has worked with such artists as Martha Argerich, Janine Jansen, Steven Isserlis and Gary Hoffman. He is a regular at the BBC Proms, the Salzburg, La Roque d’Anthéron and Verbier festivals, and also ‘Chopin and his Europe’. The 2017–18 season includes recitals in Berlin, Leipzig, Amsterdam, Brussels, Bilbao, Paris and London, Mozart with the Orchestre de Paris, and tours of Europe and South America with the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande. His recordings have included works by Chopin, Debussy, Rachmaninov, Liszt and Busoni (prizes including BBC Music Magazine Choice of the Month and a Diapason d’Or), as well as a DVD with works by Beethoven and Chopin recorded during the Verbier Festival. His latest albums feature sonatas for violin and piano by Franck and Fauré, and nocturnes by Chopin (Alpha Classics/Outhere Music). For the Fryderyk Chopin Institute, Goerner has made a number of recordings, including on historical instruments as part of the ‘Real Chopin’ series, for which he won a Diapason d’Or. He won the same prize for a disc with concertos by Paderewski and Martucci, documenting his performances at ‘Chopin and his Europe’. At the ‘Progetto Martha Argerich’ festival in 2016, he enjoyed spectacular success alongside Polish musicians in Józef Nowakowski’s Piano Quintet, having previously recorded it together with Krogulski’s Octet on a disc released by the Institute. Thus Nelson Goerner has become one of the major pianist-ambassadors of Polish musical culture. From 2014 to 2017, he was a member of the Programme Committee of the Fryderyk Chopin Institute.
