Acclaimed as one of the world’s great pianists, everything about Angela Hewitt’s playing serves to highlight the innate beauty in each piece.

Angela Hewitt is acclaimed as one of the world’s great pianists, especially adored for her interpretations of Johann Sebastian Bach and like-minded composers, where her delight in intricate filigree finds greatest room for expression. Everything about her approach to playing music – rigorous research, faultless technique, emotional openness – serves to highlight the innate beauty in each work she plays.

For this concert program, the dancing counterpoint of Bach’s partitas makes a natural connection to the miniature delicacies of Scarlatti sonatas, and to the Baroque inspirations behind two exquisite French works. The breathtakingly tricky toccata which concludes Ravel’s Sonatine requires a pianist of tremendous ability – the composer himself was too afraid to record it! Chabrier’s whimsical, 19th-century take on a Baroque dance form makes his Bourrée fantasque a joy: rhythmical, clever, and utterly French.
