Paul Lewis: Haydn, Brahms & Beethoven

Part of Classical music

Paul Lewis has been praised by The Guardian for his 'thoughtful and refined' pianism.

He concludes his three-year journey weaving together the threads that connect the music of Haydn, Brahms and Beethoven.

This concert opens with Haydn's E minor Sonata, Hob.XVI:34, at once playful and dramatic.

Brahms' late Op.117 Intermezzi take the form of three poignant lullabies, expressing the quiet grief that the composer felt all too deeply in the last years of his life.

Closing the concert, Lewis then takes on Beethoven's magnificent set of 33 Diabelli Variations.

Radically inventive, they contain musical multitudes, exploring a range of moods and styles from the parodic to the deeply profound. The interpretative possibilities presented by Beethoven's stupendous achievement are almost infinite.
