As in the previous five issues of her Beethoven cycle, Hewitt crowns her programme with one of the 'big' sonatas, here the so-called E flat major sonata, 'Les Adieux' of 1809/10. Her playing has all the qualities one associates with her renowned Bach: crisp, clean articulation, sparing use of the pedals as if she is reimagining the music on the instruments Beethoven played. It is her witty, rhythmically playful accounts of the undervalued 'easy' Op 49 sonatas that stand out here. All pure delight.
