Brahms: Four Ballades, Op. 10
Schubert: Piano Sonata in B Major, D. 575
Brahms: Three Intermezzi, Op. 117
Liszt: Aprés une lecture du Dante: Fantasia quasi Sonata
Many consider a great piano recital to be chamber music in its purest form, intimate yet universal. In the hands of a master such as Paul Lewis, it can be a transcendent experience and a personal imparting of ideas and emotions. A protégé of Alfred Brendel, Lewis shares his mentor's affinity for Austro-German repertoire, revealing the melancholy beauty of Schubert and the emotional depth of Brahms with a 'fine balance of Olympian poise and emotional engagement' (Chicago Tribune). His keen musical sensitivity and profound interpretive finesse ensure a PCMS solo recital debut that is not to be missed.
