Angela Hewitt (piano)

One of the world’s leading pianists, Angela Hewitt appears in recital and with major orchestras throughout Europe, the Americas and Asia. Her career has been established at the highest level, not least through her award-winning recordings for Hyperion. She is especially renowned for her recordings of all the major keyboard works of Bach, described as ‘one of the record glories of our age’. Her large discography also includes solo recordings of Couperin, Rameau, Beethoven, Chopin, Schumann, Chabrier, Granados, Fauré, Debussy, Ravel and Messiaen, as well as concertos by Mozart and Schumann.

Born into a musical family, Angela Hewitt began her piano studies at the age of three, performing in public at four and a year later winning her first scholarship. At the age of nine she gave her first recital at Toronto’s Royal Conservatory of Music and later studied at the University of Ottawa with French pianist Jean-Paul Sévilla. Winning First Prize in the 1985 Toronto International Bach Piano Competition launched her international career.

Angela Hewitt appears all over the world in many of the most prestigious concert halls from Carnegie Hall in New York to the Sydney Opera House. Her festival appearances include Lucerne, Verbier, Osaka, Prague, Lincoln Center and the BBC Proms, to name but a few. Her own annual Trasimeno Music Festival takes place each summer in Umbria, Italy, and features international artists as well as recitals, chamber music, and concertos from Hewitt herself. Communication with her audience is important to her, and has resulted in a huge fan base throughout the world. Her masterclasses, writings on music and booklet notes for her recordings are all hugely popular.

In 2003 Angela Hewitt was awarded the first ever BBC Radio 3 Listeners’ Award (Royal Philharmonic Society Awards). She was made an Officer of the Order of Canada in 2000, and awarded an OBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours in 2006. In the same year she was voted Gramophone’s ‘Artist of the Year’. Her 2007–2008 Bach World Tour was devoted to performances of the complete Well-Tempered Clavier in major cities on six continents. A special DVD lecture-recital entitled ‘Bach Performance on the Piano’ was released by Hyperion to coincide with this tour.
