Paul Lewis presents his second recital in the Schubert sonata series

Register nowArrow icon indicating left


The second recital in Paul Lewis‘s Schubert sonata series features two works composed in Spring 1825. Schubert completed and published the D845 sonata as the Premiere grande Sonate later that year, but he abandoned the D840 sonata part way through. The unfinished work in its incomplete form was published some 30 years after Schubert’s death. Tonight’s programme closes with the sonata the 22-year-old Schubert wrote whilst on holiday in the Austrian Alps. The carefree work reflects what Schubert scholar Brian Newbould has described as the composer’s ‘wide-eyed youthful contentment’.

Future recitals in the Schubert series will take place on:
Thursday 7 December 2023
Tuesday 19 March 2024
