1601 - Bach Performance on the Piano

Angela Hewitt´s DVD "Bach Performance on the Piano" is in two parts. The first is a two-and-a-half-hour lecture in seven chapters. Each is introduced with a performance of a short piece of Bach (the C major Two-part Invention, the Menuet in G, the E major Fugue from Book I of the Well-Tempered Clavier, etc.). The chapters include such topics as The Essentials (Phrasing, Singing tone, Articulation, Fingering, Pedalling) to Interpretation (Tempo, Dynamics, Rhythmic alterations), The Dance in Bach, Learning a Fugue, Ornamentation, as well as advice on editions, memorization, and practising Bach. The second part is a recital comprising of the Partita No. 4 in D major, the Italian Concerto, and the Chromatic Fantasy and Fugue.

The DVD was filmed in the Fazioli piano factory and concert hall near Venice which makes a fascinating back-drop to the lecture. There are subtitles in English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Japanese, two types of Chinese, and Russian.

The DVD will play in all regions of the world.

1550 - Angela Hewitt's Bach Book

Angela Hewitt’s Bach Book is a successor to A Bach Book for Harriet Cohen dating from 1932, collecting arrangements from leading composers of her day. Hewitt’s book includes two of the original arrangements – by Walton and Howells – together with her own transcriptions of three organ chorale preludes from Bach’s Orgelbüchlein (which you can hear on her Bach Arrangements CD) and six new works commissioned by the Wigmore Hall from composers Brett Dean, Robin Holloway, Elena Kats-Chernin, Dominic Muldowney, Kurt Schwertsik, and Yehudi Wyner.

A Bach Book for Angela Hewitt is dedicated to the memory of Michael Steinberg who first suggested to the pianist the idea of commissioning new works inspired by Bach.

Angela Hewitt's Bach Book is published by Boosey & Hawkes on November 20, 2010.

1573 - Messiaen: Turangalîla-Symphonie

NEW RELEASE!

Angela Hewitt is the piano soloist on this Ondine recording (Hybrid SACD) of Olivier Messiaen's mammoth Turangalîla-Symphonie, played by the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra conducted by Hannu Lintu. The ondes martenot soloist is Valérie Hartmann-Claverie.

Turangalîla is a symphony of love, but also much more. The composer himself described his symphony with the following words: "Turangalîla means all at the same time song of love, hymn to joy, time, movement, rhythm, life and death".

The work was premiered in 1949 by the Boston Symphony Orchestra conducted by Leonard Bernstein.

1574 - Beethoven Piano Sonatas, Vol. 4

Angela Hewitt presents a fourth volume in her acclaimed series of Beethoven’s piano sonatas, which has delighted her fans worldwide.

The little-known Sonata in B flat major, Op 22, the last of Beethoven’s ‘early’ sonatas, is recorded alongside Op 31 No 3 (sometimes known as ‘La chasse’, or ‘The Hunt’, because of its tumultuous Presto con fuoco finale). The album finishes with Op 101, one of the Beethoven Sonatas which Angela has performed most frequently. It is dedicated to Beethoven's favourite female pianist, Dorothea von Ertmann.

1575 - Fauré Piano Music

Angela Hewitt now turns her attention to another French composer, Gabriel Fauré.

It ends with a more radiant piece from Fauré’s youth, the earliest piece included on this recording—the Ballade pour piano seul, Op 19, dedicated to Saint-Saëns.

1599 - Schumann Kinderszenen, Davidsbündlertänze, G minor Sonata

This is the second CD Angela Hewitt has devoted to the solo piano music of Schumann. On it she has included three of her favourite works: the beloved Scenes from Childhood (Kinderszenen) with the ever popular "Träumerei"; the fantastic Davidsbündlertänze which, perhaps more than any other of his compositions, shows his dual personality of Florestan and Eusebius; and the brilliant G minor Sonata Op. 22.

1600 - Beethoven Piano Sonatas, Vol. 3

This recording, the third in the series of Beethoven piano sonatas, comprises four works from three different periods of the composer’s life. As with the two previous recordings, there was no particular plan governing their being put together, other than the inclusion of one very famous sonata (in this case the ‘Moonlight’) with others that are less often heard. The Op. 26 Sonata contains a funeral march; the Op. 10 No. 2 is a concise masterpiece of humour in music; the two movements of Op. 90 are said to be depictions of speech and song, with the second of the two sounding a lot like Schubert.

"Angela Hewitt's Beethoven is like no one else's." (International Piano Magazine)

"Playing of this ease and assurance rarely has such a profound understanding of the material. This is no mechanical journey through the cycle of keys. This is life itself." (The Observer)
