Mesmerizing, precise, driven, gifted, these adjectives and dozens more describe Angle Hewitt, one of the world’s leading pianists who has performed with major orchestras throughout Europe, the Americas and Asia. Her performances of Bach have drawn particular praise, she is one of the composer’s foremost interpreters of our time.
Ms. Hewitt began a project to perform Bach’s The Art of Fugue in major halls worldwide, based around concerts at the Royal Festival Hall in London as part of the International Piano Series.
Her award-winning recordings have garnered praise from around the world. A ten-year project to record all the major keyboard works of Bach has been described as “one of the record glories of our age” (The Sunday Times). She has been hailed as “the pre-eminent Bach pianist of our time” (The Guardian) and “the pianist who will define Bach performance on the piano for years to come” (Stereophile).
“I know of no musician whose Bach playing on any instrument is of greater subtlety, beauty of tone, persuasiveness of judgment or instrumental command than Hewitt’s is here” (BBC Music Magazine)
