Angela Hewitt is without a doubt the signature Bach pianist of our time. Inspired by her organist and choirmaster father, the young Hewitt has developed a deep fondness of Bach’s music since childhood. From completing an 11-year project recording all the major keyboard works of Bach, to organising her second all-Bach cycle world tour, one can see how Hewitt breathes Bach and transforms with the timeless music. In this talk, Hewitt will unveil her personal experience and pianistic transformation throughout all the years on the Bach keyboard.
