Tomasz Lis - Impromptus

Filmed at the London launch recital for Impromptus, Tomasz performs works from the CD and discusses the inspiration behind it, the recording process, his upcoming lecture recital series and his life as a pianist.

Franz Schubert, Frédérik Chopin, and Gabriel Fauré – three great composers, who all engaged with the small, song-like musical genre of the impromptu. The London-based, Polish pianist Tomasz Lis has now explored these impromptus, and his eponymous CD proves that even the most demanding piece can sound as if it were entirely exempt from the laws of gravity.
