Angela Hewitt: Scarlatti, Ravel & Bach

Part of Classical Season 2018/19

This beautifully programmed recital demonstrates Angela Hewitt’s affinity with the Baroque.

The first half comprises Bach’s virtuosic yet lyrical Partita No.4 and Beethoven’s famous Moonlight Sonata – perhaps the best-known work in the piano repertoire.

The second half features a selection of sonatas by Domenico Scarlatti and Ravel’s tribute to Scarlatti’s near-contemporary, François Couperin.

There have been a few great interpreters of Bach keyboard music, now performed on the piano…but Angela Hewitt is a law unto herself. She compels you to listen to her Bach on her terms. Everything sounds natural and inevitable
