Paul Lewis CBE, Saturday 15th July 2023, 7.30pm

“One of the great Schubertians of our time” Gramophone Magazine 

Indulge in the dream combination of world-renowned Paul Lewis playing some of the most passionate and romantic works for piano ever written. 

The multi-award winning pianist has regularly devoted himself to in-depth explorations of a particular composer’s output, with notable successes surveying aspects of the creativity of Beethoven, Brahms and Haydn.  In 2022, 20 years after his last Schubert series, Paul Lewis released his new CD of Schubert Piano Sonatas, including Sonata D. 664 with which he opens this programme.

The ‘little’ A major D664 is probably one of Schuberts best-known sonatas with a genial and song-like nature. The haunting Sonata No.14 is one of his pivotal sonatas, written around the time he got his syphilis diagnosis where, in the wake of that death sentence, everything became bleak. Our evening draws to a close with the imperious Sonata no. 17, composed on a journey away from Vienna where Schubert drew inspiration from the spectacular scenery of craggy peaks, green valleys, and mountain lakes.
