        PAUL LEWIS Paul Lewis is considered to be The finest British pianist in decades (The Observer) employs his formidable technique with great ease and thoughtfulness. The subtlety and lightness of touch he brought to his Musica Viva performances with the Leopold Trio in 2003 were something to behold, and anyone who was lucky enough to hear him then will be keen to do so again. His international reputation has further consolidated since that tour, a recent Wigmore Hall recital in London selling out months in advance. He first gained international recognition by winning 2nd prize in the 1994 World Piano Competition in London with his performance of Rakhmaninov's Third Piano Concerto. Still in his early thirties, he is Professor of Piano at the Royal Academy of Music, and in 2003 won major awards from the Royal Philharmonic Society and The South Bank Show'. DAVID CHESWORTH David Chesworth is an Australian based composer, keyboard player and sound designer. Known for his experimental, and at times minimalist music, he has worked in rock groups, classical ensembles, theatre, opera and sound installations. Chesworth's parents moved the family from Britain to Melbourne, Australia in the late 1960s. Chesworth studied at Latrobe University, including time with tutor and composer Jeff Pressing. In the late 1970s and early 1980s he coordinated the venue "Clifton Hill Community Music Centre"

                GARY BURTON At six years old, Burton taught himself to play marimba and vibraphone and formally studied piano when in high school. Burton has cited jazz pianist Bill Evans as a main inspiration for his approach toward the vibraphone. Burton attended the Berklee College of Music in Boston in the early 1960s. After being named Downbeat Magazine's Jazzman of the Year in 1968 (the youngest ever to receive the title) and winning his first Grammy award in 1972, Burton began a now 36 year-long collaboration with pianist Chick Corea, recognized for popularizing the concept of jazz duet performance. Their half dozen recordings won the pair Grammy awards in years 1979, 1981, 1997, and 1999. KONSTANTIN LIFSCHITZ When Lifschitz played a long and demanding Schubert program at the International Piano Festival at Williams College-both sets of Impromptus, the Moments Musicaux, and the Drei Klavierstuecke, the program reminded us, among other things, of how young Schubert was when he wrote some of his greatest music. He too was very old while still very young. The program lasted 2 1/2 hours before the encores started, but it passed as in a single moment. I have heard only two other all-Schubert programs of this quality-a recital in Paris, 40 years ago, when Sviatoslav Richter played the last three sonatas, and the performance of "Winterreise" by mezzo-soprano Mitsuko Shirai and pianist Hartmut Hoell in Harvard? Houghton Library a couple of years ago.Lifschitz is an altogether exceptional pianist; whatever he sees or imagines in the music he can realize without obstacle at the piano. He never looks at the instrument or the keyboard, but instead turns his head to the side. He is not courting the audience, far from it; he is as likely to turn his head in the other direction and face the back wall. The reason for this, I think, is that he wants to bring his ear into more direct connection with the sound-and his ear is extraordinary, particularly in its sensitivity to details of dynamics, articulation, and, most of all, texture.
