This evening, David Mellor is celebrating the 70th birthday of celebrated Brazilian Pianist, Nelson Friere.
Nelson Freire began playing the piano when he was just three years old. For his first public recital at the age of four, he chose Mozart's Sonata in A major.
Freire's international career began in 1959 with recitals and concerts in major European cities, as well as the USA, Central and South America, Japan and Israel.
Also an award-winning recording artist, Freire's performances are well worth discovering. Tonight David Mellor picks the very best that are available.
