Artist

Angela Hewitt



“...In her superbly serious performance, one that eschews all personal vanity, all preening mannerism and flamboyance but which, with strength in abundance, locates the still centre at the heart of the music.  What enviable poise and expressive beauty...what muffled and sustained opening octaves...what concentrated focus.” - From a review, Editor’s Choice, Gramophone magazine, March, 2015

The audiences’ accolades, the critics’ reviews, her peers’ admiration – all these have been building, superlative upon superlative, since Angela Hewitt won Canada’s International Bach Piano Competition in 1985 and began to claim her international reputation .  Today she is one of the world’s leading pianists,  appearing in recitals and with major orchestras throughout Europe, the Americas and Asia.  Her interpretations of Bach have established her as one of the composer’s foremost interpreters of our time.

We welcome Ms. Hewitt for her first appearance at Stratford Summer Music.
