Notes & Reviews:

Nelson Freire, Brazil's most distinguished classical musician, plays the colourful, captivating piano music of his country's most celebrated classical composer, Heitor Villa-Lobos. Eight miniature pieces - evoking children's dolls - are complemented by a movement from Villa-Lobos' Bachianas Bradileiras No 4 and his most substantial work for piano, the rhapsodic, mercurial Rudepoema, a portrait of its dedicatee, Arthur Rubinstein.

Notes & Reviews:
