Angela Hewitt, piano

Born in Canada, now based in London, Angela Hewitt is “the preeminent Bach pianist of our time” (The Guardian). As a best-selling recording artist for Hyperion, she set a new benchmark for the complete Bach keyboard works. Now Hewitt brings her expertise to Duke Performances, with two of Bach’s wonderful French Suites and the showpiece Toccata in D Major, entwined with Debussy’s dreamy sonorities for solo keyboard. Performing with consummate decisiveness, Hewitt never fails to “imbue every musical moment with an unrelenting sense of theater” (NY Times).
