Albert Nieto is Doctor with "Cum Lauden" by the University of Valencia with his research about Francisco Llácer Plá. Su obra pianística: Un piano sugerente.

His piano career, especially dedicated to Spanish and contemporary music, has made him obtain the recognition of the public and critics. On the research side has also addressed this repertoire, and proof of this is the recent publication of his critical edition of Isaac Albéniz’s Iberia, which has been accompanied by the recording of some of his pieces and has been highly praised by critics. 

Albert has performed with orchestras such as the Symphonic ones of Barcelona, Balearic Islands, Bilbao, Vallés, Belgrade, Antwerp; and with musicians of the size of clarinetist Joan Enric Lluna, flautist Jaime Martin, cellist François Monciero and Asier Polo, violinists Santiago Juan and Victor Parra for instance, in chamber music, being a founding member of Trio Gerhard.

He has performed at festivals such as the Quincena Musical of San Sebastian, Santander, Granada, Peralada, Bordeaux, Fundación Juan March, Musée Marmottan Monet in Paris... and has premiered over seventy works of Spanish composers.

He has participated in thirteen albums, recording piano works and chamber music by composers such as Albéniz, Granados, Gerhard, Montsalvatge,  Brotons (his complete Sonatas for instrument and piano), and up to thirty contemporary Spanish composers.

Albert Nieto is regularly invited to give courses by other Music Academies and centers for teacher training. He currently is professor at the Conservatorio Superior "Óscar Esplá" de Alicante.

The pianist usually writes articles for magazines and is author of the books La digitación pianística (The piano fingering), Contenidos de la técnica pianística (Piano techniques contents), El pedal de resonancia: el alma del piano (The sustain pedal: the soul of the piano), La clase colectiva de piano (The piano group class), El gesto expresivo del pianista del pianista: el espíritu del directo (The gestures of the pianist: the spirit of live performing).      

 

*We recommend to bring at least one spanish piece (Granados, Albeniz, Mompou, Falla,...) to the course to work with professor Albert Nieto. He is one of the few pianist who worked this kind of repertoire with Rosa Sabater who together with Alicia de Larrocha took their knowledge from Frank Marshall student of Enrique Granados.
