Beethoven and Chopin in the hands of pianist Nelson Goerner: two great sonatas that he magnificently interprets and "brings to light" in many ways, so evident are the freshness and vivacity in the Argentinean musician's performance. Nelson Goerner shares the same nationality with Martha Argerich (who is a friend and with whom he regularly performs) and it is audible. One also notes a quickening luminosity, a great dexterity in the fingering, and a generosity without limits& a panache in the service of two magnificent works in the concert's program. A great classical sonata, the Sonata for piano No. 26 in E-flat, Op. 81a, "Les Adieux" by Beethoven, and a great Romantic sonata, the Sonata for Piano No. 3 in B Minor, Op. 58 by Chopin. In the Largo of this second work, Nelson Goerner, whose extreme concentration is visible throughout the concert, transports us completely, leading us into the intimate universe of Chopin's music. To follow the heightened lyricism of these magnificent pages written for piano, the recital ends with excerpts from the Etudes of the Polish composer. Nelson Goerner seems to be amusing himself in demonstrating all the virtuosity that these works require, and in playing enthusiastically these shimmering gems of the pianistic repertoire.
