Angela Hewitt is acclaimed as one of the world’s great pianists, especially adored for her interpretations of JS Bach and like-minded composers. Everything about her approach to playing music – rigorous research, faultless technique, emotional openness – serves to highlight the innate beauty in each work she plays.

Angela performs the dancing counterpoint of Bach’s partitas. This makes a natural connection to the miniature delicacies of Scarlatti sonatas, and to the Baroque inspirations behind two exquisite French works. Chabrier’s whimsical, 19th-century take on a Baroque dance form makes his Bourrée fantasque a joy: rhythmical, clever, and utterly French.
