One of the world's greatest pianists, Nelson Goerner, returns to Parbold on Saturday 11 June. After a first half of beautiful French piano classics, Nelson Goerner will tackle the fiendishly difficult Symphonische Etuden by Schumann.
Born in 1969 in Argentina, Nelson Goerner was awarded First Prize at the Liszt Competition in Buenos Aires in 1986, and in 1990 he won First Prize at the Geneva Competition. He is particularly well-respected for his interpretations of works by Chopin, and is a celebrated chamber musician, soloist and concerto performer.
Fauré: Theme et variations Op. 73
