It was great that you visited us this March 2017. Your concert and recital were a great gift for our 150 year celebration. If we do see you here again it will be wonderful but until then your recordings and entries on YouTube are musical tonic for the soul. Hope you might consider recording the piano transcription of J.S. Bach, "Little Fugue in G Minor" BWV 578. A tour de force that can close any performance on a heavenly note. If music should seek to humbly please , you far exceed that mark! All the best, Wayne Choma
Bonjour Angela, Votre concert au Westben Arts Festival était tout simplement divin. J'ai adoré votre choix de musique ( Scarlatti et bien sûr Bach )et je me suis transporté par votre interprétation de Chopin. C'était magnifique ! c'était un très beau moment ! Bravo et merci !
Madam Hewitt My wife and I were at your performance on July 24 at TIP and I would like to thank you for coming , Seldom do we see such amazing talent and get to bask in its glow. As you could see from the audience response I was not the only person to feel honored. Your on stage conversations with Eric Friesen were a delight to see. A charming , polished woman of warmth. Best Wishes, Richard McMillin Kingston, Ontario
Dear Ms Hewitt: I wanted to thank you for a wonderful concert on Saturday afternoon here in Stratford. I missed your prior appearance here (way back almost 30 years ago) so was determined to see you this time and was not disappointed. It's great that you still take the time to travel to smaller, out-of-the way venues to allow some people, who would otherwise not be able to hear you in person, to do so. Don't leave it so long before you return - and next time get Mr Miller to come up with a Fazioli for your performance (lol). Regards: Joe.
Dear Ms. Hewitt, This is my second guestbook entry, with the first in 2004, as I recall. Then, I heard you play the Beethoven Piano Concerto No. 1 with the Cleveland Orchestra at Blossom. Now, I have heard you play the Goldberg Variations in Chicago. I live about 250 miles from Chicago, but as soon as I belatedly learned that you were playing the Goldberg Variations at Ravinia, I immediately reserved tickets for me and a friend. I have loved the Goldberg Variations since I was in my early 20s and I own more than 15 recordings of it (including both of yours, of course). But I had never heard it played in concert until I heard you at Ravinia. I am 59 years old, so it meant a great deal to me finally to hear the Goldberg Variations in concert, and especially played by you. I am no musician, so I have nothing expert to say about your performance, but it struck me as extraordinary, and it was a privilege to be in the audience. My very warmest thanks for your artistry and best wishes for glorious concerts to come. Robert
Many years ago I had the opportunity to sit in the last row of a venue in Lausanne and listened while Arthur Rubenstein played Chopin. Today I sat in the front row for your Goldberg Variations. Both will live in my memory forever as musical highlights of my life. Thank you!
Living relatively close to Newcastle I relish the opportunity to hear and see Angela Hewitt perform. I am disabled and am in a wheelchair and hold a Companion Card but I do not know if the Conservatory is a subscriber. Can you help?
Hi, Angela! I just want to say a HUGE thank you for tonight!! The concert was AMAZING!!! My dream of seeing you live came true, and I'll NEVER forget it! My favourite song in the concert was the last one, and I also really liked the song you did for the encore. I think it was called 'Tambourin' or something. Lol I was completely speechless when I met you (I got a bit shy) but overall it was awesome! The picture turned out great, and I absolutely LOVED the autograph (AND the fact that you signed it in a SILVER MARKER!! It's soooo pretty!) You are very down to earth and so beautiful and it was lovely to meet you!! I really appreciate the fact that you stayed after the show to meet your fans! Keep up the good work, enjoy those flowers, and I hope I'll get to see you again someday!
Thank you Angela for your YOUTUBE Masterclasses. All of my private piano students must follow your Masterclasses and demonstrate what they have learned at their next piano lessons. Thank you for sharing these with us. I truly appreciate the Importance of Slow Practice Masterclass. I find students want to play fast repertoire constantly at a fast speed. Thank you.
Ms. Hewitt, Your music making delights the world and each album is eagerly awaited and its aural rewards digested with great pleasure - your exquisite gift feeds the hungry listener. It is wonderful that we can partake in this rite. Keep truckin', Wayne
