Recently appointed CBE, Paul Lewis brings a glittering and diverse programme from Bach to Weber, with which he will have travelled the world before landing in Buxton, including Amsterdam, Chicago, Bratislava, Vancouver, Boston, New York and Bilbao. His concentration on Beethoven and Schubert in recent years with much lauded recordings has attracted the highest praise for his insights and conviction; Gramophone magazine suggested ‘that he has developed arguably into the finest Schubert interpreter of his generation’, But it was with Beethoven Sonatas and Concertos that he established himself firmly in the worldwide pantheon of great pianists. Gramophone made no bones about his complete recordings of Beethoven sonatas, saying that it was ‘one of the most highly prized recording marathons of recent years … an unmissable benchmark’.
