Notes & Reviews:

This is a disc for which one can only roll out all the superlatives. - The Sunday Telegraph

The Guardian
He is a thoughtful, restrained interpreter who keeps textures transparent. He tends to underplay the rhetoric even in the A major Sonata...Equally, the B flat Sonata unfolds without unnecessary promptings; every detail flows naturally from the last, and the flexibility of the tempi, often anticipating a modulation with a ritardando, is never overdone.

Brought back into the active catalog by popular demand, the second Schubert release by the brilliant English pianist Paul Lewis features the composers' sublime late Piano Sonatas D959 and D960. Clearly channeling the musical spirit of his legendary teacher, Alfred Brendel, Lewis finds the heart of these works and instills them with his own brand of unrivaled clarity and virtuosity. Following on Lewis' recent release of piano music by Schubert, this reissue will be welcomed by listeners everywhere.
