Tuesday's recital marks the premiere of the Pianissimo subscription, which offers a 25% discount for the first four concerts.


As part of its Chamber Cycle, the Auditorio de Tenerife is offering on Tuesday (12th) an integral by Franz Schubert performed by the pianist Paul Lewis. This date with the music of the Austrian composer and the interpretation of the English musician opens the sessions dedicated to this instrument, the first four of which are offered this season with a 25% discount through the Pianísimo Subscription.

As for Tuesday's programme, the complete piano sonatas by Schubert take the audience on a unique and heartbreaking journey through the last 12 years of his life. From the charming lyricism of the early sonatas to the transcendent creativity of the last masterpieces, and the harrowing moments of despair when his health began to decline.

With frankness and sincerity, the sonatas by Schubert express some of the most essential elements of human experience: longing, consolation, despair, joy, loss, nostalgia, and hope. In our age, his music remains as essential and moving as ever.
