Nocturnes
Alpha 359 ℗ & © Alpha Classics/Outhere Music France, 2017

REVIEWS:
BBC Music Magazine 5* / 5*
“Goerner’s Chopin was special right from the start of his career, but it has matured into something remarkable now.”

Telerama 4*
“…..le jeu lyrique et raffiné de l’Argentin Nelson Goerner…..Un double album aussi poétique et lumineux qu’une nuit de pleine lune.”

Cadences
“Quel artiste phénoménal ! Chacune des réalisations de Nelson Goerner est presque immanquablement à marquer d’une pierre blanche. […] Le pianiste est, une nouvelle fois, souverain : toucher protéiforme capable de toutes les nuances, superbe éventail de couleurs qui permet naturellement de varier les climats à l’infini, lignes raffinées tour à tour lyriques et pudiques, tout est réuni pour faire ce disque de référence.”

BBC Music Magazine 4*
“this is a performance of subtlety and confidence.”

Guardian 4*
“Pianist Nelson Goerner and violinist Tedi Papavrami clinch the muscular, urgent nature of the music as well as its sensitivity and flux; the rigour and classicism as well as the whimsy.”

Choc de Classica
“À n’en pas douter, voici un disque qui fera date.”

Diapason 5*
“Nelson Goerner domine son sujet, et de quelle manière !” 

Gramophone Editor’s Choice (October 2016) 
“Phrases are imbued with life and meaning [……] Savour the riches!”

Resmusica
“Voici une « Hammerklavier » idéale, comme on n’en avait plus connues au disque depuis belle lurette, sans doute l’une des versions majeures toutes époques confondues au sein d’une discographie pourtant aussi pléthorique que relevée.”

Alpha 224 ℗ & © Alpha Classics/Outhere Music France, 2015

REVIEWS:
BBC Music Magazine, 5* 
“This Argentinian pianist possesses artistry of a very high order… Goerner purveys poetry as natural as breathing.”

Diapason d’Or
“Coloriste sophistiqué, virtuose cérébral, Nelson Goerner met pourtant à nu les failles, les flottements, les foudres des passions dans le labyrinthe de Chopin”

Choc de Classica 
“La Berceuse joue de sa forme libre, d’une irrégularité tout aussi rêveuse. Ses ornements possèdent juste ce qu’il faut de capricieux, d’esprit de la boite à musique avec la légèreté valsante d’harmonies si dissonantes.”

BBC Music Magazine: Recording of the month (March 2015)
“Here is yet another account of the overplayed, over-recorded Schumann Etudes Symphoniques– but this one is seriously excellent…”

Pianist
“Stunning Schumann playing from Nelson Goerner. His Kreisleriana is among the finest ever recorded, and the Symphonic Studies – with the posthumous studies inserted organically – also receive a sovereign interpretation. One of the finest Schumann releases this year.”

Fanfare March
“It took me no longer than a minute to realize, upon hearing the opening strains of this recording, that I was in the presence of a very great pianist indeed. Such breathtaking musicianship, wed to a huge heart and a humanitarian spirit, is not something that crosses one’s path every day. To say the experience was humbling is an understatement.. “
