Biography 

 

 Alfonso Gómez began to play the piano at the age of five. He studied at the Conservatory of Vitoria-Gasteiz with professor Albert Nieto, where he graduated with highest honours. He furthered his studies with professor Aquiles delle Vigne, a pupil of Claudio Arrau, at the Rotterdam Conservatory (Holland), which he concluded with the highest marks. After that he studied under professor Tibor Szász at the Musikhochschule in Freiburg (Germany), where he graduated his “Konzertexamen” with distinction.

Master classes with Vitali Margulis, Jaques Rouvier, Éric Haedsieck, Jan Wijn, Galina Egiazarova and chamber music lessons with Rainer Kussmaul, Jörg Widmann, Jean-Jacques Kantorow, Donald Weilerstein and Juanjo Mena were also crucial for his both musical and artistic education.

Gómez has offered a number of recitals in Spain, France, Belgium, Holland, Austria, Germany, Italy, Ukraine, the U.S., México, Taiwan and South Korea. As a soloist, he has performed in concert with numerous orchestras - the Philharmonic of Frankfurt (Oder), Euro-Asian Philharmonic, Bilbao Symphony Orchestra, Homburg Symphony Orchestra, Orquesta Sinfónica Europea, Rotterdam Young Philharmonic, Orkest van Utrecht, Gyeonggi Philharmonic and Incheon Philharmonic - alongside conductors such as Roy Goodman, Juan José Mena, Jurjen Hempel, Nanse Gum, Jonathan Kaell and Ernest Martinez- Izquierdo. 

Gómez has won 11 national and international prizes, prominent among which was the grand prix in the following competitions: J. Françaix (Paris), Ciudad de Guernika, Alter Musici (Cartagena) and Gerardo Diego (Soria). In Rotterdam, he was awarded the Erasmus Kamermuziekprijs prize.

The eight CDs recorded to date for the labels EROL, Ad Libitum, Sinkro Records, ASA and Kairos bear witness to the abundance, diversity and complexity tackled by Gómez. Highly committed with contemporary music, he has premiered numerous works by different contemporary composers, some of which are dedicated to him and has collaborated with leading ensembles such as MusikFabrik or SWR-Experimental Studio.

Gómez’ performances and recordings have been broadcasted on numerous occasions on the radio and TV in Europe and Asia. He has been living in Freiburg, Germany since 2001 and he is represented by the Swiss artist agency "Organza Kulturmanagement". Gómez is currently visiting professor at the University of Music Freiburg and associate professor at the State University of Music and the Performing Arts Stuttgart.
