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 Gurzenich-Orchester Koln and Lionel Bringuier, one of the most talked-about of the younger generation of conductors. The release also features some favorite Chopin solo works including a Ballade, Berceuse, Polonaise and three Mazurkas.

The veteran Brazilian virtuoso Nelson Freire crowns his 70th birthday year with the latest in three new releases from Decca, a Chopin collection that culminates in a beautifully controlled account of the limpid second piano concerto, with the Gürzenich players bringing grace and intelligence to the notoriously staid orchestral writing. As substantial hors d’oeuvres, Freire gives us a plateful of Chopin favourites, including the delicious Ballade No 4 in F minor, Op 52 (which he first recorded at the age of 12) and the toothsome Berceuse in D flat major, Op. 57, each a masterclass in elegant restraint.

Review by Stephen Pritchard, The Guardian

Freire's sheer love of music, and of this music, is positively incandescent…This is playing of exceptional virility, entirely untainted by machismo posturing or narcissistic display. Chopin stands fully revealed as a giant.
