Born into a musical family, Angela Hewitt began her piano studies at the age of three. At 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 Sevilla. 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 New York’s Carnegie Hall to the Sydney Opera House. Her festival appearances include Lucerne, Verbier, Osaka, Prague, the 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. Her masterclasses, writings on music and booklet notes for her recordings are all hugely popular.
Angela was awarded an OBE in the 2006 Queen’s Birthday Honours, and was made a Companion of the Order of Canada in 2015. In 2018 Canada further honoured her with the Governor General’s Performing Arts Award for Lifetime Achievement. In 2020 Angela was awarded the Wigmore Medal in recognition of her services to music and the relationship she has had with the London hall for over thirty-five years.
From 2016 until 2020, Angela Hewitt presented the ‘Bach Odyssey’, an ambitious and exciting overview of the complete keyboard works of J S Bach in twelve recitals over four years, in venues worldwide including London’s Wigmore Hall, Tokyo’s Kioi Hall and New York’s 92nd Street Y.
