The extraordinary Brazilian pianist Nelson Freire makes his long-awaited Mostly Mozart debut, performing Beethoven’s landmark Fourth Piano Concerto, an intimate work infused with tranquility and lyricism. The program begins with Stravinsky’s Symphony in C, a work both distinctly modern and evocative of Mozart’s 18th-century textures and forms.
