It is a great pleasure to welcome Paul Lewis to open this year’s Piano Week. Internationally regarded as one of the leading musicians of his generation, his recordings of the complete Beethoven Piano Sonatas are widely regarded as world class. For us then, the final three Sonatas, perhaps Beethoven’s final testament. They are musically intense, a conclusion – and with Op 111 described by Thomas Mann in “Doctor Faustus”, as the sonata fulfilling its destiny, resolving itself, and taking its leave.
Pre-concert talk at 6.30pm (free to ticket holders)
Paul Lewis will be in conversation with Martin Roscoe
Spot the difference!
You may have noticed, if you have browsed through one of our leaflets, that there was a blank under Wednesday 15th July 6.30pm. We apologise for this mistake, which was due to a printing error. We hope you might have deduced that details of a pre-concert talk, as per the other evenings at this time, were missing! We hope to welcome you to the talk which precedes this wonderful recital!
This event has now past, so cannot be booked.
