Released by the Mirare label in September 2017, Liszt Macabre, the first recital-CD of Nathanaël Gouin, has received enthusiastic reactions from critics. For the magazine Diapason, "Liszt Macabre demonstrates the relevance of the program as well as the perfection of the performance". According to the magazine Classica (which awards him a “Shock”), "far from frightening Nathanaël Gouin, this mournful register allows him to express all his talent, luminous!" Undoubtedly, Nathanaël is one of the most original voices to have emerged on the music scene of these last years. During his residency at the Queen Elisabeth Music Chapel in Waterloo, Belgium, he received support from Maria João Pires who presented him to the public as part of the Partitura project, a concept that brings together different generations of musicians to share the scene, giving rise to major tours in Europe and Japan. Nathanaël has become a highly sought-after soloist and chamber musician, performing in Europe, Asia and North America. He has performed in prestigious venues such as the Grande salle Pierre Boulez of the Philharmonie de Paris and the Cité de la musique in Paris, La Seine Musicale in Boulogne-Billancourt, the Salle Rameau in Lyon, Bozar and the Salle Flagey in Brussels, as well as festivals such as La Roque d'Anthéron, Radio France and Montpellier, or Les Flâneries musicales of Reims, Piano aux Jacobins in Toulouse, La Folle Journée de Nantes, Tokyo, Warsaw or Yekaterinburg, the Bourgie Hall in Montreal and the new Scala in Paris. In the field of the concerto, Nathanaël Gouin cultivates a wide and interesting repertoire, which led him to some stimulating collaborations with many formations: the Philharmonique de Liège, the ensemble Les Siècles, The New Japan Philharmonic, the Orchestre National d’Île-de-France, the Brussels Philharmonic, Sinfonia Varsovia, or the Choir of Radio France. In 2016, the release of the recording of the Concerto for piano and orchestra of Edouard Lalo with the Philharmonique de Liège under the direction of Jean-Jacques Kantorow (Outhere Label) received the best reviews. Already, the magazine Classica ranks Nathanaël among the pianists from the younger generation to keep an eye on. Chamber music is obviously very present in his artistic life and he is delighted to interact with great performers such as Augustin Dumay, Jean-Claude Pennetier, Michel Dalberto, José Van Dam or Jerome Pernoo. He also founded a piano-violin duet with Guillaume Chilemme, and their recordings of works by Canal-Ravel and Schubert have been noticed. Nathanaël Gouin began studying piano and violin at the age of three. He studied at the conservatories of Toulouse and Paris, at the Juilliard School in New York, but also at the Hochschulen für Musik in Freiburg im Breisgau and Munich as well as at the Académie Musicale deVillecroze, not to mention the Queen Elisabeth Chapel. He also received guidance frommusicians such as Jean-Claude Pennetier, Michel Beroff, Louis Lortie, Avedis Kouyoumdian, DenisPascal, Rena Shereshevskaya and Dimitri Bashkirov. Winner of numerous international competitions, such as the Johannes Brahms Competition inPörtschach in Austria (First Prize), the Swedish Duos Competition (First Prize), and the Concours de Musique de chambre de Lyon, Nathanaël is also a laureate of the Fondation d’entreprise Banque Populaire and of the Fondation Meyer, as well as a resident at the Fondation Singer Polignac within the Quatuor Brahma.
