Paul Lewis, piano Paul Lewis

As a teenager, Paul Lewis spent his free time listening to recordings at his local library. He fell in love with piano music, and obsessively began to listen to recordings by the great Austrian pianist Alfred Brendel. The beauty of this story is that Paul Lewis later earned the honor of taking lessons with the great man. We have more on this story, then hear Paul Lewis play Piano Sonata No. 9, by Franz Schubert, on Thursday's Performance Today.
