This event has now passed.

There are some fine pianists who seem fated to become musicians. They grew up in musical households, they were taken to concerts, they were sat down at the piano and taught the value of practice and self-discipline before their feet could barely touch the pedals. Paul Lewis was emphatically not one of these.

He’s reckoned to be perhaps the finest among Britain’s younger pianists, with a string of prizes to his name, and a recent complete recording of the Beethoven sonatas that’s been praised worldwide. His cycles of core piano works by Beethoven and Schubert have received unanimous critical and public acclaim worldwide, and consolidated his reputation as one of the world’s foremost interpreters of the central European classical repertoire.
