"I was very moved by your interpretations. Your technical legerdemain is remarkable, and the nuances in your phrasing and articulation reveal a profound rapport with this music. Considering that the composer himself could barely play Iberia, I was amazed at how effortless you made it seem.  Of course, it is anything but that!"

Walter Aaron Clark, auteur de la biographie 

"Isaac Albéniz, Portrait d'un romantique"

Concert projects available

Iberia, full version

Playing this collection in full concert in concert is a tour de force that few pianists have dared to face. This recital is the result of a year in Spain where Arturo worked on this recital with three recipients of the Albéniz Medal. It has already been presented to audiences in Europe and North America with great success.


Le Piano Sorcier

This project combines works of great virtuosity with augmented reality projections. The sequel to Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker, Liszt's Waltz-Mephisto or Dukas' Sorcerer's Apprentice will accompany you on an immersive experience towards illusions where music and imagination become a perfect amalgamation.



Manuel María Ponce (1882-1948) is considered in Mexico as the Father of Mexican nationalism. He is the first composer from Mexico to have successfully merged a complex musical language with the folklore of his country. A brilliant pianist of Lisztian lineage, conductor and prolific composer, he is known throughout the world for his masterpieces for guitar, mainly thanks to the enthusiasm that Andrés Segovia is said to have carried for his music. However, Ponce confided to the piano his main love and it is through his repertoire for this instrument that we can get to know him better. An eclectic composer, he visits the Romantic, Impressionist, Neoclassical and Modern styles, always with a common thread of folklore.

In addition to this, you need to know more about it.

Rapsodia Mexicana No. 1
00:00 / 07:50

Repertoire for various projects


The great diversity of Arturo Nieto-Dorantes' piano repertoire gives him the quality of being a very versatile pianist. Indeed, the latter covers musical works from the Baroque period to that of today, passing through a vast chapter of Latin American music. This talented pianist is also always eager to learn new repertoires. He enjoys presenting integrals - like those of Mozart or Ponce - as much as he enjoys doing concept programs as well as various recitals.

His extensive repertoire with orchestra (which he has played almost entirely with renowned ensembles) covers the largest repertoire from Beethoven, Rachmaninoff and Prokofiev concertos to Tcherepnin concertos and Eugenio Toussaint's "Bouillabaisse".

Brahms Concerto no 2
00:00 / 18:49
