Notes & Reviews:

"Angela Hewitt's Bach on the concert grand grows in stature and refinement with each release of her projected Hyperion cycle devoted to the composer's keyboard works. Her deftly choreographed fingers rejuvenate the Italian Concerto's familiar strains to revelatory effect, and make Bach's solo/orchestral effects sound organically alive rather than predictableLike Richter, she takes the [French Overture's] opening movement's huge first ending repeat. While I normally prefer this option untaken, Hewitt plays so beautifully that you don't mind the longeurs. This is Hewitt's most absorbing Bach release to date. Don't miss it." - Classics Today (10/10)

'Hewitt's playing radiates joy, wit and profound understanding of the composer's keyboard style. This series is one of the record glories of our age' (The Sunday Times)

'This enticing collection once again confirms Angela Hewitt's reputation for playing Bach on the piano' (The Penguin Guide to Compact Discs)

'Hyperion's good sense in signing Angela Hewitt deserves yet another round of applause. Hot on the heels of her superlative account of the Goldberg Variations comes another disc that proves her status as one of today's finest Bach interpreters' (International Piano Quarterly)

'Hewitt remains today's finest exponent of Bach's keyboard music' (Gramophone)

'Stunningly beautiful... interpretations that are winning in every way. Not a note is slighted, not a phrase undernourished. She possesses a wonderful command of the music's overall architecture and wastes no time in letting us know what it is all about.' (Fanfare, USA)

'One of the most convincing Bach pianists at the present time. These performances rate highly in my league table and deserve 'benchmark' status' (BBC Music Magazine)

'Captivating' (The Times)

'This disc is one of the finest volumes in Hewitt's continuing Bach cycle, with marvellous engineering to match. Highly recommended' (International Record Review)
