About

Nelson Freire made his recording debut with the Brahms F minor Sonata in 1967. Now, half a century later, he returns to this monumental work.

The perfect repertoire at the perfect moment in his career: still in his prime at 72, Nelson Freire invests Brahms’s music with unrivalled colour and imagination.

This recital presents a portrait of Brahms across his entire oeuvre for solo piano, culminating in a selection of the celebrated late intermezzi.

This is Freire’s first Brahms recording since the 2007 Gramophone Record of the Year concerto set with Riccardo Chailly: still the reference recording.

“[Nelson Freire] clearly stands among the greatest pianists of our time or any other” - The New York Times

Reviews

Freire’s sound has always been a thing of wonder: even at full volume and full tilt there’s no hint of percussiveness in his tone – just sample the development of the first movement [Sonata no.3]; or the way the melody of the intermezzo-like slow movement is plucked almost insouciantly out of the texture... Highlights are many – the regret-filled duet of the middle section of Op 118 No 2 or the way he brings to such a quiet close the Ballade, Op 118 No 3. ... Go and buy it, and set it on your shelves next to Volodos.  Harriet Smith
