Nelson Freire (Brazil) Piano Concert : 19 May

Nelson Freire (Brazil) Piano Concert : 19 May

Brazilian pianist Nelson Freire - sought-after the world over for his interpretations of classical and romantic repertoire, and for his duo appearances with Martha Argerich - presents works by three musical giants.

The first half consists entirely of Beethoven. First we hear the brief and tender 'Andante favori', and following it the mystical explorations and vivid contrasts of the composer's final Sonata in C minor, Op.111.

In the second half, Freire turns his attention to the Romantic repertoire. Two of Debussy's Preludes are matched with two of Rachmaninov's best-loved Preludes, short, atmospheric pieces rich in melody and expressiveness.

The programme closes with a selection of Chopin classics.

Freire's recent recording devoted to Liszt has been praised as 'immensely distinguished' (BBC Music Magazine).
