A Pianist's Pianist
the_drone | 06/06/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Nelson Freire's inclusion in this collection has brought him back to the recording studio and two new recordings, one with the Liszt concertos, another a live concert, have come out since. Sony has rereleased some budget CDs with him which, unfortunately, are badly recorded; avoid them. If you want to try his artistry, get instead this wonderful collection, plus the Phillips Duo disc which has Martha Argerich pairing up with friends on a number of works. Freire is famous for dreamy romantic works, but you'll love the subtlely and power of his Brahms 3d piano sonata as much as his Liszt or his Schumann. Among the releases of the "Great Pianists" collection, this one is a true gift which restores to the public an elusive but distinguished artist."
Fantastically Amazing

"Nelson Freire's astonishing tecnique, beautiful phrasing and incredible passionate poetry no doubt make him one of the world's greatest pianists. One of the bests recordings on my shelf."
Wow!

"I had never heard of Nelson Freire before hearing him play with Argerich in Carnegie Hall. Nelson Freire is a hidden treasure ... this disc should be in your collection. I also recomend "Duo Piano Extraveganza," where he teams with Argerich."
