Notes & Reviews:

Brazilian pianist Nelson Freire was born in 1944, made his debut at the age of 5 and won many prizes as a child prodigy. He is what is called "a pianists pianist". Freire on record is a rarity, and his recital recordings are highly prized whenever one becomes available. This CD showcases his artistry perfectly. The two Liszt concertos have moments of high romantic bombast requiring a fearsome technique as well tender poetry – both are complicated structures consisting of linked multiple movements. Bartok called the 1st concerto "the first perfect realization of the cyclic sonata form".
