Paul Lewis

When: Fri., April 3, 8 p.m. 2015

The English pianist Paul Lewis is a serious Beethoven specialist. His 2008 recordings of the composer’s complete sonatas have garnered wide acclaim. At Duke, he will perform Beethoven’s final three sonatas, an enigmatic trio that, like the late string quartets, throw conventional forms out the window. Tempos fluctuate. Moods shift and rage. Ideas elongate. Genres intertwine. Melodies linger and float. Variation sets extend to the limits of human comprehension. The final sonata even approaches boogie-woogie for a few fleeting moments. —Dan Ruccia

Price: $10-$38
