Paul Lewis studied at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London and then privately with the renowned Alfred Brendel.  He performs regularly as a soloist with the world's great orchestras, such as the Boston, Chicago, London and NHK symphonies, as well as the London, New York, and Los Angeles philharmonic orchestras. Recital’s take him to the world’s leading chamber music stages including London's Royal Festival Hall, New York’s Alice Tully Hall and Carnegie Hall, Vienna’s Musikverein and Konzerthaus, Amsterdam’s Concertgebouw, and Berlin’s Philharmonie and Konzerthaus.

Originally composed for the harpsichord, Bach’s Partitas BWV 825-830 are the last and most demanding of the three sets he composed.
Next to Beethoven’s Hammerklavier Sonata written 20 years later, Beethoven’s “Grand Sonata” is his longest, but conveys a significantly lighter mood.
Chopin composed principally for solo piano. He wrote 36 waltzes -- from age 14 until his death in 1849 at 39 -- of which 18 exist and are publicly available. They were written for performance, not dancing. The three on this program were composed in 1835, 1855, and 1840, respectively.
Weber’s Invitation to the Dance was reportedly an inspiration for Chopin’s waltzes. His Sonata No. 2 was written in 1816, thirty years after Weber’s birth and a decade before his death in 1826. It will be a treat to hear, since Weber’s work is too little performed.
