By Grady Harp HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on April 21, 2012
Format: Audio CD
Harmonia Mundi has quietly lipped this 2 CD recording of sonatas by three composers as performed with great brilliance by Paul Lewis. The release form 2011 is part of the `INITIALES', a new mid-priced series, designed as an invitation to discover the top artists of Harmonia Mundi. Ten years after a Schubert disc recorded in the `New Musicians' series, this double album celebrates a British pianist at the peak of his artistry and in his genre of choice. It is no coincidence that Paul Lewis has made a specialty of the sonatas of three pianist-composers: Beethoven (of whose complete sonatas he has made a memorable recording), Schubert of course, and finally Liszt, a performance that returns to the catalogue thanks to this reissue.

This release features pianist Paul Lewis, a man at the top of the ladder and the peak of his prowess. Lewis's recordings of the complete Beethoven Sonatas are universally acclaimed. His reputation as a Schubertian is second to none. So the discs, a kind of Paul Lewis sampler, feature his `extraordinary mix of passion, power and poetry in Beethoven's Pathetique and sparkling opus 79 Sonatas, and his sense of structure, color and sensitivity in Schubert's 19th and 20th Sonatas.' Also featured here are Lewis's 2003 recording of Liszt's B minor Sonata and the mysterious `La Lugubre Gondola II', both of which Lewis performs with exceptionally lucid playing. It is no coincidence that Paul Lewis has made a specialty of the sonatas of three pianist-composers: Beethoven (of whose complete sonatas he has made a memorable recording), Schubert of course, and finally Liszt.
The works listed as they are performed here are as follows:
Beethoven:
Piano Sonata No. 8 in C minor, Op. 13 'Pathetique'
Piano Sonata No. 25 in G major, Op.

Playing of such finesse & delicacy. The too familiar Beethoven is a revelation. And the Schubert a treasure for all time. Even the Liszt manages not to be bombastic. Played it so often, if this were an old fashioned LP it would be worn out by now.
