About

In the third of three new landmark albums on the Decca label, Nelson Freire marks his 70th birthday year with a stunning recording of Chopin’s lyrical and brilliant Piano Concerto No.2.

The recording was made in Cologne with the Gürzenich-Orchester Köln and Lionel Bringuier, one of the most talked-about of the younger generation of conductors, and features some favourite Chopin solo works.

This is Freire’s fourth Chopin recording for Decca, which includes his celebrated set of the complete Nocturnes, of which the Guardian wrote: “[Freire] respects the poise and elegance of the melodic lines, floating them exquisitely while teasing out the harmonies beneath with fastidious care; this is Chopin playing of high quality, from one of the finest pianists alive today.”
