Moonlight Sonata by Candlelight

Tuesday 27 September 2022

7:00 PM

Enjoy an early evening concert of popular piano music by candlelight in the beautiful atmosphere of St Martin-in-the-Fields. The programme, played by brilliant young pianist, Lewis Kingsley Peart, includes the ever-romantic Moonlight Sonata by Beethoven, Schubert’s rousing Wanderer Fantasy, and ends with Grünfeld’s scintillating variations on favourite Johann Strauss tunes.

Based in both London and Manchester, Lewis Kingsley Peart enjoys a busy life as a working musician. Organising projects as both soloist and collaborator, he programmes a wide variety of music from the traditional classical canon, right through to jazz and the avant-garde. With a strong background in theatre, his appearances are never without verve.

Lewis made his debut at St. John’s, Smith Square in March 2018 in a programme of music celebrating the 75th birthday of renowned American composer, Stephen Montague. In the summer of 2021 he had the privilege of working with British concert pianist and composer, Stephen Hough, on his third piano sonata, ‘Trinitas’, for the Trinity Laban New Lights Festival of Contemporary Music. Lewis looks forward to future recital engagements, and is excited to make his concerto debut in 2023.
