I just heard your beautiful recital in Kingston., where I am still teaching. It was a joy to hear you again; a terrific programme as always. Didn’t wish to tire you backstage as you had mentioned feeling unwell. Sending warmest greetings, Dina

Last night's concert in Leeds's was absolutely wonderful, a delightful programme featuring the music of Couperin , Scarlatti and of course Bach. I've been listening to Angela's playing since she used to come to the Darlington Arts centre (UK) in the early/mid 1990s, when it could be said that she was merely incredibly talented , to last night when mere words cannot express her ability to convey the beauty of this music; well done Angela- you are an absolute star! And many thanks for travelling to Leeds, and please don't leave it too long before you visit the North again.

I've just listened to your masterclass on Bach's C major invention. Well, what can one say:- A Michelin star meal for the price of a pizza. Brilliant; can't wait 'til the next one's available. Many thanks indeed.

Saturday night: we are home here in Sydenham...but in effect transported to a stellar performance of the Golderg Variations that you gave a few years ago before the shadow of COVID fell over us all... Since March 2020 from time to time we have had the sustaining beauty of your playing in the days when we wondered what the future would bring us. We hope that life has not been bent too horribly out of shape for you - we can't really imagine what life may have been for artists that we know of in various fields. It is a long time since we first saw you play in Chipping Campden in England - memories of such events stay with wife thank you for your gifts and sincerely wish you well in the years to come. This month our baroque choir Melos may resurrect itself so music here may wing itself aloft once more. If you wish to write, please feel free to write at ... with all good wishes Neil and Hazel Hobbs

Hi Angela, I love your playing (and your CD booklet notes). On your CD of Bach transcriptions you introduced me to ‘Die Seele ruht in Jesu Handen’ by Harold Bauer, which is now one of my all time favourite pieces of music - thank you so much.

Having just signed on, Ms Hewitt, may I just add that I am about to hunt down your Masterclasses and continue to look for more of your CDs. The voice of your piano (or possibly the one that had an unfortunate demise as my CDs were recorded a few years ago) is superb and has a warmth which has to be heard to be believed (and I readily admit that you have an influence on that too).

Dear Angela: Sincere congratulations on receiving the Leipzig Bach Medal. I tuned in to ARTE to see and hear the Goldberg Variations last night. I have been in the Thomaskirche in the very spot where you played, making the experience even more powerful. Your performance was sheer ecstasy for me , from the opening Aria to the final notes . You played as if each voice was an individual singer; all of them joining together in a joyful choir. There aren't really words to describe the overwhelming effect of this performance on me. I will just say that tears came in the final notes of the Aria. One felt that Bach, the master, was near. He spoke through you. Thank you for your incredible dedication to his works. All the best, Dina

I had the privilege of watching you perform for the first time via live stream in Ottawa. It was so wonderful! I am a Professor of Chemistry (retired) by day but have played in church as an organist on Sunday for over 50 years... and the chorale prelude you finished is one of my absolute favourites, along with Sleepers Awake. I hoping one of my grandchildren takes up the piano. She is good friends with the Wards and I gather there is a connection there with you. Perhaps some of your musical genius will be magically be transported our way. God Bless! Peter Buist

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.
