For my first attendance to a professional classical piano concert I was pleasantly surprised. Although hearing that Leif was cancelling last minute disappointed me, what did not disappoint was Lewis’ performance last night. He received a very brief introduction that honestly could have been replaced by just more beautiful music if I had it my way. All three of Lewis’ pieces were performed absolutely remarkably and although the type of music is not what I would typically listen to, after hearing how Paul Lewis played I will definitely begin looking more in to the classical genre. The way he composed himself during the performances was very entertaining, as seeing him absorb himself entirely into the piece with his whole body was very powerful and showed me how connected he was to his music. Overall, it was a beautiful concert and I hope to see Paul Lewis return to Ann Arbor in the near future.
