Internationally recognised as one of the leading pianists of his generation, with a glut of prestigious prizes to his name, Paul Lewis is renowned for his commanding interpretations of the core piano repertoire. Underscored by a deep scholarly engagement with the music, his performances reveal remarkable insight at every turn. From the poise of Bach’s Partita No. 1, to the wildness of Beethoven’s early Piano Sonata, Op. 7 and the melancholy of Chopin’s minor mode waltzes, there can be no greater exponent for this powerful and deeply expressive music.

Performance runs: c. 1 hr 55 mins (including interval)
