Verified Purchase, F Minor - Chopin*.
Wonderfull music. The best pianist in History. Masterpieces for Piano 2: These performances are outstanding. The quality of the recording is admirable. Thank you for your excellent service.

While her Preludes are a bit uneven but often magicalI believe she could be a coming great as a Chopin interpreter. With regard to the Barcarolle, Perez is better able to glamorize this astonishing piece.
Her coda is just absolutely glorious to the point that it brought me to tears. In the B minor Sonata 2, Freire gives a bold, virile performance. Maybe a bit too bold. The interpretation is otherwise sublime. Freire has the ability to shade tempo in a way that sounds completely "right.
The 2nd movement has the right balance of bold and finesse. The Piu lento is heavenly performed. The funeral march of the Guiomar Novaes - Etudes Op. 10 & Op. 25 (Vinyl movement suffers from pedaling that diminishes the definition of the initial bass. The Andante-like section, however, is absolutely sublime.
The Finale's presto is played like the wind, figuratively and literally. Freire's Preludes may be the best yet. His Barcarolle is a runner-up to Perez. The Sonata is superb with the exception of the pedaling in the 3rd movement.
Nelson Freire has delivered some of the most incredible renditions of the Chopin works I've ever heard. I am a sucker for Chopin and this CD is very lovely and soothing. When work gets too hectic for comfort, I pop No. 2 into my drive and try to relax. Nelson Freire is one of the greatest pianists - This is probably the most musical recording of the etudes I've ever heard. Freire's Chopin is exuberant, plenty of dramatic intensity, dynamic tension and sense of drama without falling into romantic grimaces.
Over the years his pianism has gained density. I still remember mmy first encounter with N. The notable album of Chopin's 4 Scherzi By Telefunken. The Etudes Op. The Barcarolle Op. Freire is at the top of the game. Second Sonata is well played with dynamic vitality,loaded of dark visions and absolute commitment with this Op. It seems that was yesterday when I watched him in playing Proko's Third in a live performance in Caracas; since Guiomar Novaes - Etudes Op.
10 & Op. 25 (Vinyl he Guiomar Novaes - Etudes Op. 10 & Op. 25 (Vinyl showed this special feature of the greatest artists of the instrument. Don't miss it under no pretext. A must-have. One person found this helpful. Brazilian super-star pianist Nelson Freire proves himself here at his most inspired and charming.
His craftsmanship pushes him up to a very high level of artistic achievement, both Sonata no. Nelson Freire knows how to balance the required bravura with the noble sentimentalism these opuses presume.
Having assumed that Freire is world-wide recognized as an exquisite Chopin interpreter, any other comment would drop superfluous letting the stage for a fully-deserved praise. See all reviews.
