Paul Lewis, piano

Replacing Murray Perahia
 

[Paul Lewis is a] “full-blooded Beethoven interpreter whose virtuoso brilliance and deft touch illuminate every familiar phrase.” (Chicago Tribune)

Paul Lewis’s Beethoven and Schubert cycles have received unanimous critical and public acclaim, and he is widely considered one of the world’s foremost interpreters of central European classical repertoire. A former student of Alfred Brendel, he has spent the past two years exploring connections between the sonatas of Haydn, the late piano works of Brahms, and Beethoven’s Bagatelles and Diabelli Variations. He also regularly appears as soloist with the world’s great orchestras, including this season with the Berlin Philharmonic, the Chicago Symphony, and others.

We regret to inform you that Murray Perahia has canceled his North American tour. A medical setback has prevented him from performing publicly. UMS has engaged pianist Paul Lewis to perform in his place, with a program that includes Beethoven’s Diabelli Variations, as well as works by Haydn (Piano Sonata in e minor, Hob XVI:34) and Brahms (Three Intermezzi, Op. 117).
