Two of the UK’s leading pianists, Paul Lewis and Steven Osborne, embark on a tour of the UK, Belgium and the Netherlands performing works by Schubert for four hands, marking the composer’s birthday on 31 January. The two will share a keyboard to perform four works for piano duet from the last year of Schubert’s life, crowned by the great F minor Fantasie, alongside two earlier works.
