BRAHMS Piano Concerto No. 2
R. STRAUSS
Also Sprach Zarathustra

Marcelo Lehninger Conductor | Nelson Freire Piano

“The thunderous music that launched ‘2001: A Space Odyssey”

The epic musical opening of Stanley Kubrick’s 1968 film “2001: A Space Odyssey” was none other than Richard Strauss’ titanic tone poem, Also Sprach Zarathustra. Legendary Brazilian pianist Nelson Freire, who last appeared with the Grand Rapids Symphony in Carnegie Hall, returns for Brahms’ lyrical Piano Concerto No. 2.  

“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
