Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"Never before has a pianist renowned for impeccable and idiomatic performances of original Bach undertaken to provide an unstinting, high-calorie feast of 'hyphenated' Bach, served up, at times, with a degree of pianistic abandon, heavy pedelling, flexible tempi and dynamic extremes fit to give the purists nightmares. And it culminates in one of the greatest piano performances I have ever heard." ***** - Jeremy Siepmann BBC

'A magnificent addition to both the Bach repertoire and Angela Hewitt's artistically unparallelled survey of Bach's keyboard compositions' (Fanfare, USA)

'One of the foremost Bach interpreters of our time, Hewitt brings her own distinctive timing and touch. She makes the most of the piano's sonority... demonstrating remarkable finger strength in sustaining the various lines of Bach's melodies and counter-melodies and effectively drawing out the tenderness, vigour and serenity of the music. [An] attractive and impressive recording' (The Inverness Courier)

'A collection of rarities and oddities that makes for enjoyable listening. The quality of the Hyperion recording is excellent, with the right balance of ambience and instrument in the fine sounding Henry Wood Hall' (Pianist Magazine)

'Divine, uplifting' (The Ottawa Citizen)

'For pure listening pleasure that is both delightful and profoundly moving, this one is hard to beat' (National Post, Canada)
