St. Paul, Minn. — There are those magical piano recital performances where everything goes superbly. When the program sings, the piano purrs and the audiences listens as one to every nuance of the artist, it's something indescribable. Pianist Nelson Goerner gave a Frederic Chopin Society recital just this last weekend. By all accounts this was a performance that will live long in the memory. His Mozart performance was especially transcendent as you will hear in this week's Regional Spotlight.
