Johannes Brahms was strongly influenced by Johann Sebastian Bach. This recital traces the relationship between these two great German composers and masters of the piano. Brazilian pianist Nelson Freire, described as a “phenomenon” by the French daily Le Figaro, performs Bach’s Toccatain C minor, with its colossal fugue, along with Brahms’ magnificent Piano Sonata in F minor. A stupendous recital!
