The Goldberg Variations
Angela Hewitt continues to captivate and charm audiences around the world with her musicianship and virtuosity. Since her triumph the Toronto International Bach Piano Competition, Angela Hewitt has been hailed as “the pre-eminent Bach pianist of our time” (The Guardian, London, 2001), and “nothing less than the pianist who will define Bach performance on the piano for years to come” (Stereophile, 1998). In 1994, she embarked on a ten-year project to record all of the major keyboard works by Bach for the Hyperion label, a series which has been called “one of the record glories of our age” by London’s Sunday Times. The Inventions, French Suites, Partitas, the complete Well-Tempered Clavier, the Goldberg Variations and the Toccatas have received acclaim for their artistry, “effortlessly eclipsing all competitors” (Gramophone, 1997). Her disc of Bach Arrangements won a Juno Award in Canada for the Best Instrumental or Chamber CD of 2001. During the year 2000, she gave complete performances of the 48 Preludes and Fugues in Canada, the United States, England, and Germany. She has performed throughout North America and Europe, as well as in Japan, Australia, China, Mexico, and the former Soviet Union.
