Paul Lewis & Picnic at Glyndebourne

Picnic in grounds at 1pm, before concert in the auditorium at 3pm.

 

Schubert

Sonata No.19 in C minor D958
Sonata No.20 in A major D959
Sonata No.21 in B flat major D960

 

At the beginning of 2011, Paul Lewis embarked upon a two-year project to perform all the piano works from the last six years of Schubert’s life. As this labour of love reaches its climax, he performs Schubert’s last major compositions for the piano, written the year before his death in 1828.

The three late sonatas represent the culmination of Schubert’s genius for writing for the piano. Revealing a rare depth of expressiveness, they reflect the turbulent emotions that assailed Schubert in the closing months of his life and present profound challenges and opportunities for an eloquent interpreter.

Paul Lewis’s Schubert odyssey has taken him to concert halls throughout the UK, the USA, Japan and Australia, as well as to the great musical centres of Europe. This concert provides a breathtaking overview not only of Schubert’s genius but also of the artistry of one of today’s great instrumentalists.

      http://glyndebourne.c...­ is the website. Sorry no dog in the grounds, it's a posh stately house with opera house attached. However there are many walks around the house if you could leave your dog in the car (although you would need to find some permanent shady parking spot.) Presumably you have a ticket for the concert ? link here http://brightonfestiv...­

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
