Paul Lewis piano

‘Paul Lewis gives you the best of all possible worlds,’ wrote Gramophone upon the British pianist’s completion of his Beethoven Sonata recordings a decade ago. Warmth, intelligence, conviction and total service of the composer pervade Lewis’s playing and here he brings us three outright masterpieces, ending with the monumental Diabelli Variations. Before it, the reverie which characterises the famous ‘Moonlight’ sonata, and its predecessor which moves from contrast and disorientation to fiery defiance.

The concert is scheduled to end at approximately 21.35
