Dear Angela, I'm a young piano student, and I've been working on some preludes and fugues recently. My teacher and I thought it would be a good idea to get a recording of the Well-Tempered Klavier, so I started listening to several. I ended up buying yours, and I've enjoyed it immensely! You did such a lovely job with it. Thank you! --Robin
Hello, I wonder if you have published, or might publish, your transcriptions of the Bach chorales you play on the Hyperion CD, as Kempf and Hess published theirs. I find them enchanting, and in particular love Alle Menschen Muessen Sterben. I like it so much I'm beginning to wonder if I could try to transcribe it myself, though fear it may come out sounding not quite right - the story of my harmony and composition exercises over the years! With best wishes, Elizabeth Balsom
Miss. Hewitt sono felicissimo di poterle scrivere e spero presto di poterle dire a voce che la gioia che il suo modo di suonare trasmette è stupendo raramente ho provato simili emozioni come nei "suoi notturni" di Chopin e soprattutto nelle Suite di Bach. Solo ieri abbiamo parlato di lei con Davide Lupattelli.Grazie per la sua dolcezza per la sua gioia e per la sua arte, ne abbiamo bisogno. spero di poterla incontrare ed ascoltare al Trasimeno Music Festival e magari di poter fare qualche lezione con lei.
Hello! I was searching information on your old recording of some of the Bach concerti, and various links led me here. I was amazed to see that you are coming to West Virginia on April 10, and I hope I will have a chance to hear you there. This is a delightful website--charming and warm--one of the best I have ever seen. The festival sounds wonderful. I have a couple of questions about contributions, etc., that i will address through the other 'contact' point. I look forward to April 10 with great eagerness. You cannot imagine what it means to people in areas like this to hear such a world-class artist! Best wishes! Penny Adams
From:Australian freelance journalist David J.Baird. JUST listening to your Bach recordings Ms Hewitt-especially love the Sinfonia in D Major. As a classical guitarist,this is a particular favorite..and interesting to swap notes-so to speak!-on your performance. Remarkable execution of staccato at the beginning of piece. Very hard on the guitar-so I imagine tremendously difficult on the piano. I have always thought it's such a catchy piece-I'm surprised no-one has arranged a 'pop' version! The classical guitarist John Williams' former group Sky had a Number One hit with their arrangement of Bach's famous Toccata. Seriously, your playing,particularly of Bach,shows a complete comprehension of the Great Master's technical demands. I heard your recent interview on the Australian Broadcasting Corporation's Music Show. You demonstrated an intuitive grasp of how to play Bach - with an erudite but plainly-spoken explanation of the techniques performing Bach requires. Many play Bach-but few are chosen to perform in the spirit he composed. Your fellow Canadian and Bach exponent Glenn Gould would have indeed been envious. Safe touring. -David J.Baird freelance journalist melbourne australia
Hi Angela! Looking forward to your Vancouver concert and also hoping for a brief visit. I've sent a note to London - tracking you down! How super to be in Australia...will try for at least sunny days, if not hot, when you're here. Take care, Sue & Chris
Hi Angela, It's been years since you performed for our school assembly at Glebe when we were in Gr.13!! I still remember being captivated by the music you brought to life from the piano that day. I'm so thrilled that you have enjoyed such success and wish you continued joy as you bring the piano to life for so many around the world.
Dear Angela, Your concert in Sydney last night was absolutely wonderful. Thank you for your exquisite playing with the fabulous Australian Chamber Orchestra - a perfect partnership. Loved the red shoes! Linda and Langdon
Dear Angela I enjoyed very much your concert with the ACO in Sydney last night: top class performances, all round. Also, many thanks for being so warm and friendly when signing copies of your CDs after the concert. I was a bit wary of asking you to sign your Bach Partitas, having previously stood in line to be treated contemptuously by a 'superstar' violinist at Carnegie Hall (no names!). It does make a big difference, and I for one, appreciate your taking the time to be nice to your fans! BTW, I'm listening to the Partitas now, and they are superb - another fine AH addition to my Bach collection! best wishes
Hi Ms. Hewitt, I attended your masterclass a few weeks ago in Ottawa and really appreciate that you took the time to share your knowledge with us students. It was very inspiring to hear you, both in the class and concert. Best Wishes, Bryan
