Paul Lewis: A Master at the Palau with his Nuanced and Emphatic Interpretation of Schubert

Musical interpretation is itself something wonderful, of course, but it is only alive if there is someone listening to it.

On the stage of the prestigious Palau de la Música Catalana, stands a pianist whose art transcends the notes to immerse itself in the very essence of classical music.

It is in these carefully nuanced silences where the true magic resided. Lewis not only played the notes, but also wove a musical narrative rich in nuances and depth. Each silence was a whisper, a pause that invited the listener to immerse even further into the sonic world of Schubert.
