PAUL LEWIS CBE piano

Programme:

Schubert: Sonata for Piano No.18 in G major D894 (1826)

Beethoven: 33 Variations in C on a Waltz by Diabelli op.120

Paul Lewis CBE Piano
An evening of compelling piano music played by former artistic director of The Leeds International Piano competition and one of the leading musicians of his generation.

Schubert’s G major sonata, described by Schubert specialist Imogen Cooper as "one of the rare completely serene sonatas that he wrote”, is paired with Beethoven’s monumental work that stands alongside Bach’s Goldberg Variations as one of the two greatest sets of variations for piano ever composed.

“It’s difficult to pinpoint why Lewis’ way with Schubert is so special. there is profound humanity to the music making, one that is, yet, never in doubt of the musicological mind behind it” The classic review 2019
