Nelson Freire plays Bach, Beethoven and Debussy
Verbier Festival 2007
Thank you for your understanding.
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.
