Shenson Chamber Music Concert: Angela Hewitt
Artistic Director: Gilan Tocco Corn
Pianist Angela Hewitt kicks off a Celebration of Music in May for Shenson’s 20th Anniversary.
One of the world’s leading pianists, Angela Hewitt appears in recital and with major orchestras across the globe. Her interpretations of Bach established her as one of the composer’s foremost interpreters of our time. The artist recently embarked on a project entitled ‘The Bach Odyssey,’ which comprises all of Bach’s keyboard works in 12 recitals over the next four years. Hewitt will present these performances in major venues around the world, including London’s Wigmore Hall, New York’s 92nd Street Y, Ottawa’s National Arts Centre, as well as in Tokyo and Florence.
Recent highlights include concerts with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, the National Arts Centre Orchestra, Ottawa, and the Orchestre symphonique de Montreal; as well as recitals at Vienna Konzerthaus, Rotterdam’s De Doelen, Sociedad Filarmonica de Bilbao, and a tour of Australia with Musica Viva.
Hewitt’s recent recordings include her sixth volume of Beethoven’s sonatas, a new recording of Bach’s Goldberg Variations, and Messiaen’s Turangalîla Symphony with the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra and Hannu Lintu. She released her first album of Scarlatti Sonatas in spring 2016.
