“Goerner is a master. Though a stunning virtuoso, he never shows off; the prevailing character of his artistry is lyrical. His grasp of structure is innately dramatic, but melodrama is not his style. He gives the impression of playing everything from the inside out, removing all barriers between the listener and composer.”

“Goerner, forty years of age at the time, plays with mature directness and intelligence. There are no idiosyncrasies, no peculiarities of accent or rhythm or chording or colour...Goerner is serious, sober and not given to excess...The recital is thus short of ‘incident’, as such, but it’s not short of musical distinction.”
