Paul Lewis: Schubert Cycle Programme II

Paul Lewis: Schubert Cycle Programme II

Presented by Saffron Hall

Each of Schubert’s miraculous sonatas seemingly contains a world of emotion from unfettered joy to dark introspection, embellished with characteristic melodic invention of the greatest song-writers.

Laid end-to-end they are an unforgettable musical experience, especially in the hands of Paul Lewis – “arguably the finest Schubert interpreter of his generation” (Gramophone). The elegance and sure-footed musicality of his performances, the vivid colour palette he draws from the piano and a searching, ever-evolving imaginative approach ensure he is an ideal guide to these jewels of the piano repertoire.
