Product Notes

After the Second Piano Concerto (Alpha 395), Nelson Goerner presents here his first solo Brahms recital with the Sonata op.5, a youthful composition that is 'impetuous, full of ardour and vitality', says Goerner, 'but which requires an interpreter who has reached maturity in his or her development to express all that it contains'. In fact, the Argentinian pianist has had this sonata in his repertory since the start of his career and has played it extensively in concert. Many composers have taken an interest in Paganini and written variations on his famous theme: Liszt before Brahms, and Rachmaninoff and Lutoslawski after him. 'Brahms displays exuberant invention in his Variations, which are at once highly virtuosic and very profound, and above all overflowing with imagination. Brahms gives the name "Études" to these variations which, like the études of Chopin and Liszt, go far beyond the superficially off-putting nature of the title', concludes the pianist. 'It's a marvel of inventiveness!'
