JEAN-SÉBASTIEN BACH / FERRUCCIO BUSONI
‘Nun komm der Heiden Heiland’ BWV 659

LUDWIG VAN BEETHOVEN
Piano Sonata No. 21 in C M^major Op. 53 ‘Waldstein’

CLAUDE DEBUSSY
Children’s Corner

At the Verbier Festival in 2007, we experienced Freire’s talents as a solo pianist in a musical program that put his beautifully subtle playing on full display. It opened with a piece by Bach transcribed by Busoni, a work both restrained and majestic, followed by Beethoven’s Piano Sonata No. 21, the Waldstein—a work marked by striking fluidity and aggressive con brio. The concert came to a close Debussy’s Children’s Corner, a delightful piece infused with poetry and delicacy.
