Gala Concert from Monte-Carlo - Beethoven: Piano Concerto No. 4 & Symphony No.8

Nelson Freire piano
Orchestre Philharmonique de Monte-Carlo
Kazuki Yamada

The Orchestre Philharmonique de Monte-Carlo has been invited to perform at the inner courtyard of the Prince‘s Palace in Monaco. It is a magical place, where a wonderful atmosphere meets remarkable acoustics, making it a dream come true for all music lovers. The OPMC perform under the baton of their renowned chief conductor Kazuki Yamada. Nelson Freire appears as the soloist for Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 5 – a piece which made him famous as a wunderkind at the age of 12. The Brazilian pianist has long been seen as a connoisseur’s pianist, but he is now thought of as one of today’s universally recognized great musicians, bringing a degree of tranquil thoughtfulness to his interpretations that puts him in a class of his own. 
“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)
