Paul Roberts Piano Recital
Liszt, Love and Petrarch: the Pianist as Narrator.
This lecture recital is an exploration of performance and communication at the keyboard. Presented by international pianist and long-time Portland favorite, Paul Roberts.
Paul Roberts is known internationally as a leading exponent of French piano music. His Reflections: The Piano Music of Maurice Ravel was published by Amadeus Press in America and in the UK in April 2012. It will be accompanied later in the year by a recording of the major piano works. Reflections joins two acclaimed books on Debussy: a biography, Debussy (Phaidon) and Images: The Piano Music of Claude Debussy (Amadeus), which has become a seminal text on the subject. Paul Roberts has recorded CDs of the music of Debussy, a DVD lecture-recital (for Amadeus), Mists, Fairies and Fireworks on Debussy's Preludes, and lectures for television, from the keyboard, of La mer and Ravel's Bolero, which have been seen all over the world.

In July 2012 he will give a lecture recital in New York for the International Keyboard Institute and Festival. He is well known for his special brand of master class, in which he aims to be fully supportive of the student while maintaining a constantly informative rapport with the audience. He has conducted master classes throughout Europe, North America and Australia.
In London Roberts he has made frequent appearances at the Wigmore Hall and has recorded for the BBC. He is an Honorary Fellow of the Guildhall School of Music, where he is a professor of piano.
