Dear Angela: I have to tell you how much we enjoyed your concert at the Poisson Rouge this evening. It was a special experience to hear you and Ann Sophie in such an intimate space. Good for you for scheduling a recital in such a funky venue!
Wonderful recital in Chicago today! So beautifully prepared, performed, nuanced. An elegant uplifting program and performance. I would love to know the composer and title of the first encore!
I thoroughly enjoyed your performance last evening with Anne Sofie Von Otter at Koerner Hall. I first learned of you reading Music Magazine in 1988. I still have that edition, and enjoyed reading the article of this early time in your career, as I was completing my B Mus at Western, Ont.
was the Fazioli you played at Koerner yours, or from Remenyi? It was lovely, perfectly in tune, as my partner mentioned. Thanks for performing for us in Toronto!
I start my day with Angela Hewitts Bach. And I never am depressed!
Angela I attended your concert in Aurora, Ontario. It was the most enjoyable piano concert I have been to. The warmth of your tone, your touch, your interpretation was breathtaking. I was fortunate enough to be in the front row. You took me on an unimaginable journey with your performance. I am very familiar with the guitar and orchestrated versions of the Suite Española. It was a joy to hear them played on the piano. I wanted to get up and dance with you. I heard nuances that I hadn't noticed before. You played a Scarlatti for your encore. I just wish I could remember which one it was. Wishing you all the best on your upcoming recording of the Scarlatti Sonatas. Many thanks for a most memorable and enjoyable performance.

I just finished listening to Your "Art of Fugue". I have many many performances of this work and I am ashamed that until now I found it a little boring when played on keybord. Your performance change my opinion. You really put a new light on it. I think its probably best
performance of this work since 1750 !
Your concert tonight at Wgmore Hall in London was an absolutely stunning performance from beginning to end. The beautiful and thoughtful programme using the Scarlatti Sonatas to frame your Spanish works was brilliant. In addition, those Scarlatti Sonatas are simply not heard enough in concert and the eight you played along with your well deserved Scarlatti encore proved that these are keyboard gems of the highest order and deserve much more performance attention. Thank you so much ! I might also add that your rhythmic interpretation and visual excitement at performing the Spanish dances has elevated your playing to the highest level of virtuosity and commitment.
Congratulations to you and to your wonderful Fazioli piano. It was truly a concert I will remember the rest of my life.
I am looking forward to your Wigmore Hall recital on Sunday with great anticipation. The last time I heard you was in Toronto at the Mozart triple piano concerto and double that you played with Louis Lortie celebrating Mozart. Now I really look forward to your Scarlatti and the rest of your programme.
I hope things go well and it will be very interesting to hear you play your Fazioli but this time in Wigmore Hall and not Roy Thomson Hall.
Sorry to miss you after rehearsal today. As always, you played superbly, engagingly, insightfully, and captivatingly. How I adore hearing you. What gorgeous tone Look forward to performance tomorrow evening.
Thank you for all the wonderful insights and useful tips on interpretating Bach in your DVD "Bach Performance on the Piano". It enabled me to score high on my Bach piece (BWV830) in my fellowship examination. I think any diploma students should watch it.
Once again, thank you!
With Best Wishes!
