Pictures at an Exhibition

Paul Lewis' inspired work at the piano has been lauded for its keen emotional sensitivity and profound interpretive finesse. A protégé of Alfred Brendel, Lewis shares his mentor's affinity for Austro-German repertoire, revealing the melancholy beauty of Schubert, and the emotional ambiguity of Beethoven with a "fine balance of Olympian poise and emotional engagement" (Chicago Tribune).
