EVENT: Paul Lewis Concert!
For those readers in California, here’s a great event for you to consider:
Pianist Paul Lewis received admiration and praise for his poetic and beautiful interpretations of the Beethoven piano sonatas. His subsequent recordings of the five Beethoven piano concerti also won unanimous praise. Now Mr. Lewis turns his focus to Franz Schubert as part of the opening of a major two-year project exploring the great composer’s piano works.
Like other instrumentalists, Paul Lewis has to put up with the “YP” label for a while (Meaning “Young Pianist”). However, if you’ve heard him play, you’ll realize that you are listening to a major artist, and you’ll quickly drop that unfortunate label…
We have an opportunity to hear Paul Lewis as part of the Cal Performances series in Berkeley in February of next year. You can read more about Mr. Lewis in a Post I did earlier this year regarding one of his recordings.
Below are details for his upcoming concert:
• Sonata in C Major, D. 840
• Drei Klavierstücke
• Sonata in D Major, D. 850
Sun, Feb 20, 3 pm; University of California /Berkeley; Hertz Hall
