Sonata for Piano No 18 in G major D894

33 Variations in C on a Waltz by Diabelli Op 120

One of the world’s greatest pianists performs works by two masters of the keyboard in the glorious setting of Glyndebourne. Paul Lewis is synonymous with the works of Schubert, whose Sonata No 18 is a luminous work characterised by a serenity that belies the more turbulent emotions churning beneath the surface. In the year that marks the 250th anniversary of Beethoven’s birth, Lewis pays tribute with a performance of the Diabelli Variations, a dazzling sequence of miniatures that adds up to a work of monumental scope and inventiveness, spiked with humour, that has been hailed as the greatest piano music ever written. Overflowing with lyricism, emotion and profound insight, these works are a sublime showcase for Lewis’s astonishing artistry.
