Nelson Freire - Encores (CD ALBUM (1 DISC))

Brazilian pianist and Latin Grammy winner Nelson Freire has long been seen as a connoisseur's pianist, but a series of superbrecordings have raised his profile to the extent that he is now thought of as one of today's universally recognisedgreat musicians. Whether playing the great warhorses of the repertoire or the gentlest miniatures, he brings to his performances a level of quiet thoughtfulness that puts him in a class of his own.

'Encores' celebrates his 75thbirthday. Tracks range from Purcell to Rachmaninov; Scarlatti to Shostakovich and 12 of Grieg's Lyric Pieces. Also included are treasures such as the SgambatiMélodiede Gluck, the Paderewski Nocturneand Albeniz's Navarra.

"In the age when overt showmanship reaps big rewards and grabs lots of attention, the Brazilian pianist Nelson Freire offers a gentle reminder that decorous piano playing and interpretive depth have an irresistible power all their own." The New York Times(London)
