Music: Classical
Take an exciting musical journey into the works of Haydn, Brahms and Beethoven with Paul Lewis at the helm. Paul is known for immersing himself in epic multi-year musical projects, which have included his vast study of Beethoven’s complete sonatas and piano concertos and Schubert’s final piano works. His latest odyssey delves into Haydn’s piano sonatas and the piano compositions of Johannes Brahms, bridged by Beethoven’s three sets of Bagatelles before culminating with the Diabelli Variations, described as Beethoven’s greatest work for the piano. Paul’s project comprises four concerts spread over two seasons; the first two concerts take place in the 2017-18 Season, the final two in our 2018-19 Season.

HAYDN: Sonata in C major, Hob. XVI:50
BEETHOVEN: 6 Bagatelles, Op. 126
BRAHMS: 6 Klavierstücke, Op. 118
HAYDN: Sonata in G major, Hob. XVI:40

“His account (of Brahms Piano Concerto No. 1) has clarity, muscle and steely pride, but also intimacy, vulnerability and volatility: the combination is magnetic” — The Guardian
