About This Performance

This concert is part of the Elaine Kligerman Piano Recital Series.

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

Mozart: Sonata in A Major, K. 331
Scriabin: Five Preludes, Op, 74
Mussorgsky: Pictures at an Exhibition [Suite]
