The brilliance of one of today’s most celebrated pianists is given full rein in the exceptional acoustic of Glyndebourne, as Paul Lewis returns with a programme bursting with lyricism and breathtaking virtuosity.

Bach’s Partita No 1, an intricate filigree of geniality and refinement, contrasts with the heroic vitality of Beethoven’s large-scale ‘Grand Sonata’. Chopin’s waltzes are miniature masterpieces, brilliant whirls of melody and sophistication which cleanse the musical palate in preparation for the warmth and intimacy of Weber’s Piano Sonata No 2, a tour de force of Romantic mood and eloquence.
