Nelson Freire — Pianist

Program notes

An exquisite and emotional concert presented by Brazilian pianist Nelson Freire!

At the Verbier Festival in 2007, we experienced Freire’s talents as a solo pianist in a musical program that put his beautifully subtle playing on full display. It opened with a piece by Bach transcribed by Busoni, a work both restrained and majestic, followed by Beethoven's Piano Sonata No. 21, the Waldstein—a work marked by striking fluidity and aggressive con brio. The concert came to a close Debussy's Children's Corner, a delightful piece infused with poetry and delicacy.
