Paul Lewis - Schubert
Live from Wigmore Hall, London
Presented by Louise Fryer
Renowned British pianist Paul Lewis plays some of Schubert's most popular works for the piano.
Known for the depth and intimacy of his interpretations, he begins his recital with four of Schubert's Impromptus and continues after the interval with another set of delightful minatures - a set of 'Moments Musicaux'. The final piece in the concert by contrast is the much more substantial 'Wanderer Fantasy' considered to be one of Schubert's most difficult works for the piano. Indeed once when Schubert himself played the piece in a performance for his friends, he stopped and shouted, "Let the Devil play the stuff!".
