‘Few pianists alive convey the sheer joy and exhilaration of being masters of their craft more vividly and uncomplicatedly than Nelson Freire,’ The Guardian wrote. In this concert, conducted by Jesús López-Cobos, the Brazilian virtuoso plays Schumann’s Piano Concerto. Freire made his public debut when he was just four; when he was 12, he was a finalist in Rio de Janeiro’s first international piano competition. It made him famous. As he says, ‘After soccer the piano is the second great love of Brazilians.’
