“An instant link from head and heart to fingertips” –The New York Times
Angela Hewitt appears in recital and as soloist with major orchestras throughout Europe, the Americas, Australia, and Asia. Her interpretations of the music of J.S. Bach have established her as one of the composer’s foremost interpreters of our time. In 2020 she was awarded two prestigious prizes: she became the first woman to receive the City of Leipzig Bach Medal, and she was the recipient of the Wigmore Hall Gold Medal, in recognition of some 80 performances over the past 35 years in London’s prestigious chamber music venue. Conducting concertos of Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven from the piano, Hewitt has led the Toronto Symphony, the Hong Kong Philharmonic, and the Copenhagen Philharmonic, among many others. She was named Artist of the Year at the 2006 Gramophone Awards, Instrumentalist of the Year at the 2010 MIDEM Classical Awards at Cannes, and in 2018 received the Governor General’s Lifetime Achievement Award in Ottawa.
