Haydn Sonata in G, Hob XVI: 40
In the first of a new four-part series, Paul Lewis, one of the leading musicians of his generation, journeys through the piano music of Haydn, Brahms and Beethoven. Expect moments of startling originality, wild passion and raw emotion — balanced by a generous dose of quirkish humour as Haydn surprises, shocks and pokes fun at the listener!
‘Faced with such excellence, a mere critic can only abandon paper and pencil and listen to this heroic but deeply moving artist with awe and amazement’ GRAMOPHONE
