Following Nelson Freire in his concerts and recitals, from his first contact in career to backstage receptions with, the film tells the story of the eponymous piano-playing prodigy who went on to become an international legend and the man they call ‘the pianist’s pianist’.
This documentary explores the idea of the tremendous modesty that Freire manifests toward exhibiting himself as a celebrity, which shows Freire has always avoided the spotlight and accolades to focus on developing himself musically.
