- Angela Hewitt (Piano)
Notes & Reviews:
Sixteen years have passed since Angela Hewitt's first, justly celebrated, version of Bach's immortal Goldberg Variations. In these newly recorded performances from 2015, she commits her ever-evolving response to a work which contains the 'shadowed lesson of the whole world,' and which continues to play a central role in her life as an artist.
Angela Hewitt has recently performed with orchestras including The Cleveland, Toronto Symphony, Philharmonia, and Oslo Philharmonic orchestras and the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra at Carnegie Hall. She has also appeared with kammerorchesterbasel, Camerata Salzburg, and the Rotterdam Philharmonic and City of Birmingham Symphony orchestras, as well as the Verbier Festival Chamber Orchestra. Recent and future highlights include concerts with the Finnish Radio Symphony and London Philharmonic orchestras, BBC National Orchestra of Wales, Brussels Philharmonic, Sydney Symphony, RAI Torino, Orquestra Sinf˘nica Brasileira, BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra at the BBC Proms and a return to Verbier Festival.

More than any contemporary player, she manages to suggest the harpsichord's plucking mechanism with her brilliant articulation - the trills of Variation 16!...her fluency makes the Goldbergs sound easy.
Pianist Magazine, October 2016
A perfect recording for her fans.
BBC Music Magazine, Christmas 2016
The fingers are as formidably on the ball as ever - capable of the most tender translucency, of staccato leaps that 'ping', and able to differentiate and characterise several voices simultaneously with jaw-dropping felicity.
Recording information: Christuskirche, Firlstraáe, Berlin-Oberschöneweide (12/14/2015-12/17/2015).
