Music in the Round - Paul Lewis (piano)

Music in the Round - Paul Lewis (piano) Internationally-renowned pianist Paul Lewis returns to Sheffield to play the Steinway piano that he helped Music in the Round choose! The programme Paul has chosen for this concert explores extraordinarily wide-ranging emotional colours that demand extreme sensitivity and pulsating virtuosity.

This is perfectly illustrated by Liszt’s ‘Dante’ sonata, a piece that contrasts nightmare visions of Hell with serene and joyous representations of Heaven. But the works by Brahms and Schubert make an equal impact through moments of lyrical beauty, peaceful reflection and, in the case of Schubert’s B major Sonata, liberal dashes of humour.

"There is in Lewis's playing a strong physicality, a firm connection between his deep thinking about the music and his articulation of it". Geoffrey Norris, The Daily Telegraph
