Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

It is in the music of the Romantic era that one can best appreciate Mr. Friere's many pianistic gifts. This all-Chopin double-disc offering from Warner Classics finds the publicity-shy, under-recognized Brazilian virtuoso performing eight of the composer's Nocturnes, the Berceuse, the A-flat Polonaise, op. 53, the Ballade in A-flat, the magnificent Fantaisie in f, the 4 Scherzi (complete), and several other superb works. "Few pianists alive convey the sheer joy and exhilaration of being masters of their craft more vividly and uncomplicatedly than Nelson Freire." (The Guardian)
