Brahms Three Intermezzi, Op.117
Beethoven 33 Variations in C on a Waltz by Diabelli, Op.120
Paul Lewis is one of the greatest pianists of the 21st century. A specialist in the music of the great masters, particularly Beethoven, his performances and recordings have won him international acclaim. Anthony Tommasini declared inThe New York Times: 'There are many prized recordings of the Beethoven sonatas … but if I had to recommend a single complete set, I would suggest Mr Lewis’ distinguished recordings.' With a beautiful touch and an astonishing ear for the many colours of the piano, a Paul Lewis recital is an experience not to be forgotten. In the intimacy of the Queensland Symphony Orchestra studio, this concert will be one of the musical highlights of 2019!
The Artist-in-Residence program is supported by The University of Queensland. Presented by Queensland Symphony Orchestra and Brisbane Festival.
