Arturo Nieto-Dorantes

Musical Pieces


"A master of the
full-orchestra sound
in piano"

- Kurt Rutz, Die Rorschacher Zeitung, Switzerland

Hailed by critics as the “best Mexican pianist of his generation”, Arturo Nieto-Dorantes inevitably sets the stage ablaze from the moment he fuses with his instrument. His artistic maturity and impeccable technique allow him to tackle the most diabolically difficult works with great panache and dexterity, unleashing a broad and colourful palette of sounds.

Arturo Nieto-Dorantes was under 15 when he first appeared as a soloist with a symphony orchestra, performing Chopin’s Concerto No.2. Today, he frequently guests with some of the most prestigious ensembles, in Mexico and abroad, including the Mexico City Philharmonic, the San Antonio Symphony, and the Orchestre symphonique de Québec. An undisputed master of the full orchestra sound, he has performed under the baton of many famous conductors, including Grzegorz Nowak, Carlos Miguel Prieto, and Gabriel Chmura, to name only a few. The piano virtuoso has also concertized throughout America and in Europe as a soloist, chamber musician, and recitalist. In addition, his brilliant recordings and high-level performances have garnered him high praise from critics. He is also known for having performed the complete sonatas of Mozart in recital, as well as the international premiere of the complete piano works of Mexican composer Manuel María Ponce

Moreover, Nieto-Dorantes has won several national and international awards and accolades, including the “best instrumental performer award,” bestowed by the Theatre and Music Critics Association of Mexico, in 2002.

Without any doubt, Arturo Nieto-Dorantes is an exceptionally gifted musician, a brilliant and prolific artist who seduces every listener with his unparalleled know-how and spellbinding virtuosity. Lend your ears… and be amazed!
