Angela Hewitt occupies a unique position among today’s leading pianists. She appears in recital and with major orchestras throughout Europe, the Americas, Australia and Asia, and her interpretations of the music of J.S. Bach have established her as one of the composer’s foremost interpreters.
In this programme she plays Bach, but he does not dominate. Mozart is represented with piano sonatas composed in the early 1780s, and to finish, Ravel’s Sonatine followed by a piece by a composer whom Ravel much admired, Emmanuel Chabrier.
In 2006 Angela Hewitt was awarded an OBE from Queen Elizabeth II and in 2015 she was promoted to a Companion of the Order of Canada. In 2018 she received the Governor General’s Lifetime Achievement Award in Ottawa.
