About

The Concerto Broadcasts 1968 - 1979

To celebrate Nelson Freire’s 70th Birthday (18th October), this special 2CD collection presents concerto repertoire that is not currently in Nelson’s Decca catalogue. This collection brings these very good radio broadcasts together for the first time on CD.

Decca has mined the archives of radio stations in France, Germany and the Netherlands to create a double-album of recordings made at the beginning of his career in Europe during Freire’s twenties and early thirties: the years when he was described by the press as a “young lion of the keyboard”.

This collection brings these outstanding remastered radio broadcasts together for the first time internationally on any format.
