About This Performance

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 the melancholy beauty of Schubert and the emotional ambiguity of Brahms with a “fine balance of Olympian poise and emotional engagement” (Chicago Tribune). His keen emotional sensitivity and profound interpretive finesse ensure a PCMS solo recital debut that is not to be missed.
