Adriel Gomez-Mansur (Piano)

Born: 1989 - Buenos Aires, Argentina

The Argentinean pianist, Adriel Gomez-Mansur, began to learn the piano at the age of 4. In the following years he became a student of René Tesco, Antonio De Raco, Carmen Scalcione and, currently, Luis Lugo. Nelson Gœrner, Ralph Votapek, Alan Weiss, Andrea Lucchesini, Alexis Golovine, Akiko Ebi, Roberto Urbay and Zenaida Manfugas have also given him classes. At the age of 7, Adriel made his first appearances in Argentina's concert halls as well as on television. In 2001 and 2002, he featured in the Martha Argerich Festival in Buenos Aires and, in 2003, the Festival Llao di Bariloche. The same year, he was nominated a 'revelation' in Classical Music category of the Clarín Prize. In 2004, he won a special award from the Argentinean music critics association as well as the first prize at the 7th Concurso Bienal of the Festivales Musicales. In 2005, Martha Argerich invited Adriel to her festival in Lugano and, in 2006, to the Meeting Point in Beppu, Japan.

André Delacroix of Resmusica wrote of Adriel Gomez-Mansur's concert at the 25th Festival de la Roque at Anthéron: "He plays the Second, Third and Fourth Impromptu of Schubert, Rachmaninoff's Prelude in G sharp minor, and the Etudes no. 1 and no. 12 of Scriabine. His play is characterized by clarity, finesse and emotion. Lines of great purity, a subtle and elegant phrasing and a technically impressive play win over the audience. With his delicacy, generosity and profound respect for the composition, avoiding all affectation, he makes the notes shine and jingle as they softly disappear into the clear night. A great pianist is born."

For his first recording, Adriel Gomez-Mansur has picked some of the pieces he played at that concert. Schubert's 3 last Impromptus (Op. 20), plus 4 Preludes of Sergei Rachmaninov, 2 Etudes of Scriabine, two pieces of Franz Liszt and Robert Schumann and one of Frédéric Chopin.
