Paul Lewis, piano

Sun Mar 19 2017 3pm
Chan Shun Concert Hall

VRS audiences have had the opportunity to witness Paul Lewis’ rise to fame since he first performed in Vancouver in 2001. He is now regarded as one of the world’s foremost interpreters of the central European classical repertoire.

Of Paul’s recordings of the complete Beethoven sonatas, Anthony Tommasini of the New York Times wrote, “There are many prized recordings of the Beethoven sonatas from past masters and current artists. But if I had to recommend a single complete set, I would suggest Mr. Lewis’s distinguished recordings.”


Bach: Partita No. 1 in B flat major, BWV 825
Beethoven: Piano Sonata No. 4 in E flat major, Op. 7
Chopin: Three Waltzes
Weber: Piano Sonata No. 2 in A flat, Op. 39


There will be a pre-show chat in the Chan Centre’s Royal Bank Cinema at 2:15pm.
