Angela Hewitt

1 Feb 2014

One of the world’s great pianists and one of the pinnacles of classical music in one of the country’s finest music venues: this special recital is an unmissable treat in a glorious setting. Bach’s The Art of Fugue, BWV 1080 is a breathtaking examination of the possibilities and permutations of counterpoint – the art of combining distinct melodies in one seamless whole. Immensely moving in its direct eloquence, complex in its genius and exhilarating in its joyful celebration of melody, this is music distilled to its purest form. The Canadian pianist Angela Hewitt has forged an international reputation as a leading interpreter of Bach’s music, and her numerous discs have become benchmark recordings.
