Overview

Beethoven: Eleven Bagatelles, Op. 119
Haydn: Piano Sonata in E-flat Major, Hob. XVI:49
Haydn: Piano Sonata in B Minor, Hob. XVI:32
Brahms: 4 Klavierstücke, Op. 119

A great piano recital is 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 sharing of ideas and emotions. A protégé of Alfred Brendel, Lewis shares his mentor’s affinity for Austro-German repertoire, revealing melancholy beauty and emotional ambiguity with a “fine balance of Olympian poise and emotional engagement” (Chicago Tribune). His keen musical sensitivity and profound interpretive finesse ensure a solo recital that is not to be missed.
