About Edinburgh International Festival: Angela Hewitt

The Canadian pianist’s recordings of Bach are held up as benchmarks for their profound insight.

Angela Hewitt 1 - 12th August 7.30pm

Remarkable Canadian pianist Angela Hewitt has received global acclaim in a broad range of music – from Mozart and Beethoven through to Liszt, Debussy and Messiaen. Delicacy and transparency combine thrillingly with power and vigour. Her recitals sing and dance, dazzling with their dexterity, yet captivating with their wisdom and joy.

She has twice recorded Bach’s monumental Well-Tempered Clavier – 48 profound explorations of each of the keyboard’s possible tonalities, captured in music of sublime beauty and uncompromising rigour – as well as taking the piece on two epic world tours.

For the first of her two International Festival recitals, Hewitt performs the 24 preludes and fugues of Book 1, launching with the serene, rippling beauty of the opening C major Prelude, cherished the world over.

Angela Hewitt 2 - 14th August 7pm

In the second of her two International Festival recitals, Hewitt concludes her traversal of Bach’s monumental work with the tripping dances and pioneering explorations of Book 2.

Buy tickets for both concerts in one transaction and save 20%.
