Born in 1969 in San Pedro, Argentina, Nelson Goerner has established himself as one of the foremost pianists of his generation. He was awarded First Prize in the Franz Liszt Competition in Buenos Aires in 1986. This led to a scholarship to work with Maria Tipo at the Geneva Conservatoire, and in 1990 Nelson Goerner won the First Prize at the Geneva Competition.

“He seems incapable of giving a routine performance of even the most overplayed repertoire – yet there is not even the merest hint of gimmickry in his performances. What makes his playing so special is its combination of glorious depth and richness of tone with fine musical intelligence…” Guardian
