JOHANN SEBASTIAN BACH
Angela HEWITT | piano
There must be something of a Bach in Canada! The most distinguished Bach piano interpreter Glenn Gould and his dignified follower Angela Hewitt were born very near one another. Gould in Toronto, Hewitt in Ottawa. The last time, in March 2016, Hewitt, the daughter of a cathedral organist, played Goldberg’s Variations in the World Piano Music series. Her performance was breath-taking. December 2018 will be devoted again to Johann Sebastian, but this time to his more unique pieces. Namely to the selection of partitas in which Angela, together with us, will recollect her excellent recordings from 1997 for the Hyperion label. There is no more appropriate music for the special Advent period.
The concerts are held under the auspices of H. E. Barbara C. Richardson, Ambassador of Canada to the Czech Republic
