Paul Lewis explores the late piano music of three Austro-German masters in a recital that traces a path from the grace and wit of Haydn to the concentrated emotive power of Beethoven and Brahms.

Paul Lewis is internationally regarded as one of the leading musicians of his generation. His numerous accolades include two Edison awards, three Gramophone awards, the Royal Philharmonic Society's Instrumentalist of the Year award, the Diapason d'Or de l'année, The South Bank Show's Classical Music Award, and the Accademia Musicale Chigiana International Prize. In 2016, Mr. Lewis was appointed Commander of the British Empire in the Queen's Birthday Honours list. He holds honorary doctorate degrees from University of Southampton and Edge Hill University.

Lewis performs regularly as a soloist with the world's great orchestras. He is a frequent guest at prestigious international festivals that include Lucerne, Mostly Mozart, Tanglewood, Schubertiade Schwarzenberg, Salzburg, Edinburgh, and London's BBC Proms, where in 2010 he became the first pianist to perform a complete Beethoven piano concerto cycle in one season. Mr. Lewis's recital career takes him to venues that include Lincoln Center's Alice Tully Hall, London's Royal Festival Hall, Paris's Théâtre des Champs-Élysées, Amsterdam's Concertgebouw, Chicago's Symphony Center, Tokyo's Oji Hall, Melbourne's Recital Centre, Zürich's Tonhalle, Barcelona's Palau de la Música Catalana, Vienna's Musikverein and Konzerthaus, and Berlin's Philharmonie and Konzerthaus.

Lewis's 2016-2017 season included Beethoven concerto cycles with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, Orquestra Sinfônica do Estado de São Paulo, and Royal Flemish Philharmonic Orchestra, as well as appearances with the Orchestre de Paris and Daniel Harding, Philharmonia Orchestra and Andris Nelsons, Chicago Symphony Orchestra and Manfred Honeck, and Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra and Bernard Haitink. His 2017-2018 season sees the start of a two-year recital series that explores connections between the sonatas of Haydn, the late piano works of Brahms, and Beethoven's bagatelles and Diabelli Variations.

STRAVINSKYPulcinella <1919-20, rev. 1948>Pulcinella was Igor Stravinsky's first foray into a style that would eventually be known as Neoclassicism; the Russian composer would go on to produce a substantial output of works that were inspired by musical aesthetics that were associated with the 17th and 18th centuries, subsequently inspiring his contemporaries such as Milhaud, Poulenc, Honneger, Strauss, Bartok, Kodaly and Martinu to also draw their musical material from works of the past.Performed on period instruments, the first half of this concert will feature works that have directly inspired Stravinsky's composition. Conductor and early music specialist Masaaki Suzuki returns to YST with musicians from Bach Collegium Japan to work with the Conservatory Orchestra in this special performance.

Conservatory Orchestra Series: Preludes to the Fawn - Strauss's Don Juan & Tiu's Tchaikovsky
JASON LAI conductorALBERT TIU pianoCONSERVATORY ORCHESTRAR. STRAUSSDon Juan, Op. 20DEBUSSYPrélude à l'après-midi d'un faune, L. 86TCHAIKOVSKYPiano Concerto No. 2, Op. 44“After all, an artist is by definition a man accustomed to dreams and living among apparitions."Claude DebussyYST Conservatory’s final orchestral concert of the year offers masterworks from three of the late nineteenth century's most iconic composers, each linking in a different way to its Dreams & Apparitions theme. Where Don Juan seems in retrospect a natural evolution in aesthetic and sonority to the subjective intensities of the Romantic age, Debussy's Fawn offers that era a quietly compelling revolution in musical approach and direction. The evening culminates with the pianist as hero, with faculty member Albert Tiu offering Tchaikovsky's glittering and virtuosic 2nd piano concerto.
