World-renowned pianist Angela Hewitt returns to Sage Gateshead for an afternoon of music for solo piano by three of the world’s greatest composers for the instrument: Bach, Mozart and Chopin. After her performances of the complete Well-Tempered Clavier at the 2019 Edinburgh Festival, the London Times wrote, “…the freshness of Hewitt’s playing made it sound as though no one had played this music before.” and we are certain she will bring the same energy and clarity to everything she plays today.

Angela Hewitt occupies a unique position among today’s leading pianists. With a wide-ranging repertoire and frequent appearances in recital and with major orchestras throughout Europe, the Americas and Asia, she is also an award-winning recording artist whose performances of Bach have established her as one of the composer’s foremost interpreters. In 2020 she received the City of Leipzig Bach Medal: a huge honour that for the first time in its 17-year history was awarded to a woman.
In September 2016, Hewitt began her ‘Bach Odyssey’, performing the complete keyboard works of Bach in a series of 12 recitals. The cycle was presented in London’s Wigmore Hall, New York’s 92nd Street Y, and in Ottawa, Tokyo and Florence. After her performances of the complete Well-Tempered Clavier at the 2019 Edinburgh Festival, the critic of the London Times wrote, “…the freshness of Hewitt’s playing made it sound as though no one had played this music before.”
