Notes & Reviews:

Sunday Times
Even now, when the greatness of Schubert's mature piano sonatas is unchallenged, the C minor is, for some reason, neglected, at least when compared with the other two sonatas composed in the final year of his life. Yet it is fully their equal, as Paul Lewis's passionate performance movingly reminds us. He might have found a leaner texture for the first movement's spectral coda, though I am loath to cavil at playing so fine and so responsive to the wealth of invention - playing at once spacious and implacably rhythmic. His account of the enigmatic A minor is no less masterly.
