Paul Lewis

British pianist Paul Lewis is internationally regarded as one of the leading musicians of his generation. His visionary interpretations of repertoire landmarks, imaginative programming and ability to give fresh life to even the most familiar of compositions have drawn worldwide critical acclaim and secured his status among today’s finest performers. He is also an extensive recording artist, and his multi-award winning discography for Harmonia Mundi showcases his work as a soloist and chamber musician.

Lewis appears regularly as soloist with the world’s great orchestras, including the Chicago Symphony, London Symphony, London Philharmonic, New York Philharmonic, LA Philharmonic, and the Royal Concertgebouw.

Lewis’ 2017-18 season saw the start of a two-year recital series exploring connections between the sonatas of Haydn, the late piano works of Brahms, and Beethoven’s Bagatelles and Diabelli Variations. His upcoming season sees the continuation of this recital cycle visiting venues including Queen’s Hall in Edinburgh, Flagey in Brussels, Melbourne Recital Centre and the Royal Festival Hall in London as part of the International Piano Series. This season, Lewis will make his debut with the Berlin Philharmonic and with the Orchestra dell’Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia and return to perform with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and the BBC Philharmonic. This season also sees him perform with the Hallé and the Scottish Chamber Orchestra and the continuation of his musical partnership with tenor Mark Padmore with chamber music recitals throughout the season.
