CLASSICAL | Paul Lewis

by

comment

English pianist Paul Lewis is what you could call a Beethoven specialist. An expert interpreter of the classical music master, Lewis plays with an engaging combination of exactitude and finesse, communicating all the power of Beethoven without diminishing any of the composer's melodic flourishes. On Monday, Lewis comes to Kilbourn Hall as part of the Fernando Laires Piano Series, performing Beethoven's "Six Bagatelles" alongside two Haydn sonatas and Brahms's "Sechs Klavierstücke." This is top-flight chamber music, in all its poignancy and sonic intimacy.

Paul Lewis plays Monday, November 13, at Kilbourn Hall, Eastman School of Music, 26 Gibbs Street. 8 p.m. $19-$54. 274-3000; eastmantheatre.org; paullewispiano.co.uk.
