GRAMOPHONE RECORD OF THE YEAR 2008!

Schnabel, Kempff, Brendel are great but Lewis gives you the best of all worlds

Every one of Paul Lewis’s now-complete Beethoven Sonatas series has been selected as an Editor’s Choice. Deservedly so – and this final instalment boasts all the virtues of its predecessors – a pianist nimble of mind and fingers, penetrating interpretations delivered with just the right lightness of touch and bold imaginative leaps that can leave the listener staggered.
