"Every note is supercharged with feeling and expressiveness ... more
than a pianist's pianist, he's a musician's musician."
- The Dallas Morning News

"... if there is a more suave, pianistic, & subtly gifted artist
before us today, I cannot imagine who it might be."
- Opus Magazine

"Some of the most satisfying pianism of the season.  Ravishing tone,
surprising force.  He made it sound like music while breezing through
its difficulties as if it were a C major scale."
- The New York Times

"Certainly one of the most exciting pianists to emerge in
the Rubinstein succession - this is one of the biggest natural
talents for the keyboard that I have ever heard.  Freire is a
great natural musician.  His unusual technical powers permitted
him to make music out of passages that usually merely astonish."
- Boston Globe
