Notes & Reviews:

Nelson Freire brings a lifetime's experience to his first-ever album devoted to the music of JS Bach. The album was recorded in his 70th birthday year and offers over 80 minutes of music. The release provides a perfect overview of Bach on the piano: original works such as the Fourth Partita and Chromatic Fantasy & Fugue; one of Bach's own keyboard transcriptions (the slow movement of Marcello's Oboe Concerto) plus a selection of transcriptions by Busoni, Siloti and Myra Hess.

Gramophone Magazine, April 2016
This, Nelson Freire's first disc devoted to Bach, is predictably personal. It speaks of a long acquaintance with the works on offer and you only need to sample the Fourth Partita's Sarabande to hear how lovingly he caresses the music, giving it a raptness that rivals Perahia.

BBC Music Magazine, June 2016
A pianist half his age could feel elated with the pin-sharp, dancing articulation that so often trips from Freire's fingers.
