Despite the reputation that precedes him, Nelson Freire is discreet, modest, and, even after a long career as classical pianist beginning in the late 1950s, he confesses to feeling nervous before each recital. Being a child prodigy –he made his debut at the tender age of five with Mozart's Sonata in A, K. 311-, today Freire is considered one of the most dexterous interpreters of Chopin's works for piano, which nonetheless does not overshadow the delicacy with which he has approached the classical Brazilian repertoire of Heitor Villa-Lobos and Ernesto Nazareth. On this evening the audience will also listen to Palos y Cuerdas, an instrumental trio that has pored over and explored the most unsuspected paths of Colombian Andean music. From their approaches to jazz to the passionate interpretation of the work of Gentil Montaña, the musical challenges taken on by the Saboya brothes are always a pleasant surprise.
