Star Canadian pianist Angela Hewitt tours the world extensively and continues to receive rave reviews. Hewitt has been hailed as “the pre-eminent Bach pianist of our time”. In 1994, she embarked on a ten-year project to record all of the major keyboard works by Bach for the Hyperion label, a series that has been called “one of the record glories of our age”.
However until recently she had always avoided Bach’s final work, “The Art of Fugue” which she brings to Rome during this recital, which also features music by Beethoven. 20.30.
