Description

ABOUT THIS CONCERT
Paul Lewis, one of the world’s great interpreters of Beethoven and Schubert, will perform a favorite Haydn sonata and three autumnal gems by Brahms. Beethoven’s monumental Diabelli Variations were an overachiever’s response to Anton Diabelli’s crowd-sourcing of variations from some 51 composers, who all contributed at least one variation, including Czerny, Moscheles, Franz Schubert and the young Franz Liszt. Stay after the performance to hear a conversation with the eminent pianist.
