Paul Lewis: Brahms, Beethoven & Haydn

Part of Classical Season 2018/19

Paul Lewis is renowned for his interpretations of the Classical repertoire. Tonight he continues his project tracing the thread of musical heritage that runs between Haydn, Beethoven and Brahms.

Brahms’ Op.116 Fantasies are characteristic of the composer’s mature style: introspective, melancholic, yet tender. Haydn’s C minor Sonata – his only one in that key – begins in a similar vein, but takes a more dramatic turn before ending with a brief return to a more reflective mood.

The second half opens with the elegant humour of Beethoven’s Op.33 Bagatelles and closes with Haydn’s late E flat major Sonata – his most expansive work for the piano, almost Beethovenian in scale.
