An exciting return to Parbold for one of the greatest British pianists of all time. Paul Lewis works regularly as a soloist with the world’s great orchestras, and his recital career takes him to concert halls and festivals around the globe.

In 2010 he became the first person to play a complete Beethoven piano concerto cycle in a single season at the BBC Proms; indeed Paul’s affinity with Beethoven is unparalleled, and he is widely regarded as one of the world’s foremost interpreters of his music.

We are fortunate that Paul will present two Beethoven sonatas at his recital in Parbold - the early Sonata No.5, written in 1798, contrasting with the composer’s final piano sonata, No.32 at the end of the evening. Sandwiched between, Mozart’s Piano Sonata No.10 perfectly  complements the Three Intermezzi of Brahms, which he described to a friend as “three lullabies for my sorrows”.

Paul Lewis was appointed CBE in the 2016 Queen’s Birthday Honours, and his numerous awards include the Royal Philharmonic Society’s Instrumentalist of the Year and the South Bank Show Classical Music award.

"There are many prized recordings of the Beethoven sonatas from past masters and current artists. But if I had to recommend a single complete set, I would suggest Mr Lewis’ distinguished recordings.” - New York Times
