English pianist Paul Lewis’ cycles of core piano works by Beethoven and Schubert have received unanimous critical and public acclaim worldwide, and today he performs works by both composers. Following the Schubert sonata, a piece whose first movement the publisher Haslinger dubbed ‘Fantasie’, is one of Beethoven’s best known of all in the Sonata quasi una fantasia, Op. 27 No. 2 (1801), nicknamed the ‘Moonlight’.
