Angela Hewitt

Tonight, I went to enjoy Angela Hewitt playing Bach's Goldberg.

It's fantastic. In the beginning, I was kind of not used to the way she performed because I am too used to the Glenn Gould's play.
But after a while, I started to appreciate her sense of touching.
Thanks that I checked the mail at 5 pm today. It's like a gift to me.

The following is the introduction of Angela Hewitt,

Gramophone Artist of the Year Angela Hewitt (2006) occupies the position in Bach keyboard playing today that Glenn Gould enjoyed a generation ago. Completed in 2005, her 11-year project to record all of Bach’s major keyboard works has been described as “one of the record glories of our age” and has earned her a huge following. Hewitt has been extolled as “the Bach pianist par excellence of her generation” and “nothing less than the pianist who will define Bach performance on the piano for years to come” (Stereophile). Over the past decade, fortunate Krannert Center audiences have been immersed in Bach’s Goldberg Variations through the incomparable Murray Perahia and Christopher Taylor. Now they can witness still more facets of the work as Hewitt—perhaps the most elegant interpreter of this literature—reveals them.
