  尼尔森•弗莱尔是当今最伟大的钢琴家之一。他的乐坛生涯是慢热式的。他从没在聚光灯下放出耀眼的光芒,虽然他也是一个获奖专业户(包括1964年获得迪努•利帕蒂大奖)。他不经常出现在音乐厅演奏圈内,而是谨慎、明智地选择出场时机。

Nelson Freire has long been seen as a connoisseur's pianist, a series of superb recordings have raised his profile to the extent that he is now renowned of as one of today’s greatest musicians.

Born in Boa Esperança, Brazil, he began his piano lessons at the age of three with Nise Obino and Lucia Branco, who had worked with a pupil of Liszt. He made his first public appearance at the age of five playing Mozart’s Sonata K. 331. In 1957, and after winning a grant at the Rio de Janeiro International Piano Competition with Beethoven’s Emperor concerto, he went to Vienna to study with Bruno Seidlhofer, teacher of Friedrich Gulda. Seven years later he won the Dinu Lipatti Medal in London and the first prize at the International Vianna da Motta Competition in Lisbon.

His international career began at 1959, Freire has appeared at almost every important musical center, in recital and working with countless distinguished conductors and orchestras. As a great musical collaborator, he has toured extensively with Martha Argerich, with whom he shares a long-time musical collaboration and friendship. They have produced several recordings together, which includesa live recital from the Salzburg Festival.

He has an extensive discography and was included by Philips in its historic series Great Pianists of the 20th Century, released in 1999. He has also been an exclusive Decca artist since 2001, his release includes major works by Beethoven, Chopin, Schumann, Debussy, Liszt, as well as the two Brahms Concertos with the Gewandhaus Orchestra under Riccardo Chailly. The Chopin bicentenary year of 2010 saw two new releases by Freire: he records the complete Nocturnes and a recital album. In the Liszt bicentenary year of 2011 Decca released his recital album Harmonies du Soir, he also releases an album of his compatriot Villa-Lobos, Brasileiro, in summer 2012.

In October 2014 he celebrated his 70th birthday with the first release of Beethoven concerto cycle with Riccardo Chailly and the Leipzig Gewandhausorchester, coupling the Emperor concerto with the Sonata Op 111, it was followed by a recording of the Chopin F minor concerto with the Gurzenich Orchestra Köln under Lionel Bringuier, prompting BBC Music Magazine to say: “. . . it would be a rare connoisseur not to recognise a major master in the lyrical, rhythmically buoyant, spiritually abundant playing here”. Radio Days, a two-CD collection of concerto radio broadcasts from 1968 to 1979, included repertoire Freire had never recorded commercially, as well as his legendary Paris debut in Tchaikovsky’s first concerto with Masur in 1969. In March 2016 comes his first recorded recital of the music of Bach, featuring four great keyboard works and a collection of shorter pieces and arrangements.

Freire will be including Bach in his recitals during spring 2016 in Lyon, Paris, Berlin, Perugia, Baltimore, San Francisco, Palo Alto and Vancouver. His diary also has two recitals in Brazil and dates in Finland, Luxembourg, France and Germany, with Beethoven and Brahms concertos featuring prominently.

In March 2007, Nelson Freire was appointed a Commandeur des Arts et des Lettres by the French government and in January 2011 he was made a Chevalier (Knight) of the Légion de’Honneur, the French government’s highest award to a foreigner.

“Few pianists alive convey the sheer joy and exhilaration of being masters of their craft more vividly and uncomplicatedly than Nelson Freire.” – The Guardian
