Frédéric Chopin is one of the favourite composers of the Argentine pianist Nelson Goerner. Just look at his discography: no less than seven CDs were dedicated to the composer's piano music. With these recordings, he won prizes all over the world for their poetic interpretations. In a conversation with director Gilles Ledure, this artist in residence at Flagey talks in detail about Chopin's famous nocturnes and the brilliant Andante spianato et Grande polonaise brillante. What does this music mean to him and how does he arrive at his compelling interpretations?
