Secrest Artists Series presents pianist Paul Lewis

This is a guest post from the Secrest Artists Series:

Paul Lewis

The Secrest Artists Series will present a concert by British pianist Paul Lewis at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 16 in Brendle Recital Hall, located in Scales Fine Arts Center.

Lewis is one of the leading musicians of his generation. His performances of core piano works by Beethoven and Schubert have received critical and public acclaim internationally, and consolidated his reputation as one of the world’s foremost interpreters of the central European classical repertoire.

Enrich your concert-going experience by joining a pre-performance talk at 6:40 p.m. in Room M208, adjacent to Brendle Recital Hall. The talk will be led by Peter Kairoff, professor and chair of the music department. He will discuss what aspects of Haydn, Beethoven and Brahms’ musical styles make us consider them all part of one great tradition, and also what differences distinguish their individual styles.


Haydn: Piano Sonata in C major Hob XVI/50
Beethoven: Six Bagatelles, op. 126 (1824)
Brahms: 6 Klavierstücke, op. 118
Hayden: Piano Sonata in G Hob XVI/40

 The concert will have festival seating.  Doors will open at 7 p.m.

Tickets will be $18 for adults, $15 for seniors (62 and older). For non-Wake Forest students (12 and older), admission will be $10.  For children five-years-old and younger, admission will be $5.
