As I write I am listening to English Suite No. 5 by J. S. Bach. Your playing and the superb sound you produce nourishes the soul. Along with Glenn Gould, Rosalin Tureck , Busoni and others of similar stature Bach could not have better interpreters. I remain in debt for the gift that you give all of us. God keep you and your loved ones safe.
Our Dear Most Gracious Angela, It was an enormous joy to hear the heavenly music of Bach coming through your own heart and soul on to ours at the Wallis-Annenberg in Beverly Hills this past Sunday. Somehow, between the first chance I ever had to hear you in live performance many years ago in Glendale, CA, playing the "Goldberg Variations" and then again on Sunday evening, a whole 25 years had gone by when I never was close to where you were performing live. Luckily (for me) your many wonderful and exceptional recordings remained a constant company in my life. My deepest thanks to you, also, for your most kind and generous gesture of having your wonderful and kind Joan, allow me a copy of the CD of your 2015 performance of the variations as a gift after I had the great pleasure of meeting and chatting with you after the recital on Sunday. Even if there had been any minute space in my heart that you had not yet captured through your exceptional performances, you've now filled with this great act of human generosity. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! With all my respect and love, Khasha Ostovany
Dearest Maestra, I just wanted to share that my heart is also broken at the loss of your beloved piano. I hope that the pain your adoring fans feel in our hearts help you bear the loss. I am so very grateful for your exquisite interpretations of the Bach works. You are such an inspiration. Sincerely, Maria M.
We have been enjoying The Six Partitas for a while now. And then, to hear about the demise of the Fazioli! It must have been a shock, and our condolences to you.
Dear Angela Hewitt , I’m sure you’ve heard this thousands of times already - but thank you so much for all of your wonderful recordings. They’ve brought me soooo much joy ! Please excuse gushing lol. I’m thrilled your re- recording some of the Bach works as your Fazioli sounds especially amazing in hires .96/24. I must also thank you for introducing and educating me on the wonders of Fazioli pianos . What a beautiful sound they make . Attending your music festival in Italy is at the top of my bucket list. Until then , all the best to you in your life and career . Best, Drew Turner
Hello Angela! I love your interpretation of sonatas by Domenico Scarlatti ! First heard his music on guitar, performed by Julian Bream, while a student working at London(Ont)Public Library in 1970's. Still have that on "vinyl" ! Missed your performances of Scarlatti works a year or 2 ago. Don't see any Scarlatti in your upcoming performance dates in the Ottawa or Toronto area? We still have the poster you signed for us after a wonderful performance at Chateau Laurier in Ottawa, with National Symphony Orchestra in 80's. Thanks! Renate
Hi Angela, I would simply like to say that now that I am old, and having studied Bach for 54 years, that in my next incarnation I wish that I may have your wonderful ability to understand the many aspects of the Master's music. He would be very pleased with you. Best wishes, Denis
It was a pleasure meeting you in Cartagena, Angela! Congratulations on your performances! Awesome.
It was great that you visited us this March 2017. Your concert and recital were a great gift for our 150 year celebration. If we do see you here again it will be wonderful but until then your recordings and entries on YouTube are musical tonic for the soul. Hope you might consider recording the piano transcription of J.S. Bach, "Little Fugue in G Minor" BWV 578. A tour de force that can close any performance on a heavenly note. If music should seek to humbly please , you far exceed that mark! All the best, Wayne Choma
Bonjour Angela, Votre concert au Westben Arts Festival était tout simplement divin. J'ai adoré votre choix de musique ( Scarlatti et bien sûr Bach )et je me suis transporté par votre interprétation de Chopin. C'était magnifique ! c'était un très beau moment ! Bravo et merci !
