G - 'Seeing a close-up of Angela Hewitt's hands is like watching the purring engine of a Rolls-Royce in motion … Precision, articulation and a sense of tamed power are evident in the springy musculature. Shots, too, of the face reveal the unpretended emotion begind each phrase as she practises in performance what she has demonstrated in lecture … The content is a masterclass. The location is the Fazioli piano factory, whose products she plays. The clear, singing treble and bright, unsmothering bass speak for themselves' (The Sunday Times)

Angela Hewitt shares the inspiration and experience behind her award-winning playing in an illustrated lecture that explains the technical and practical steps essential for performing Bach on the piano. Angela Hewitt is a phenomenal artist who has established herself at the highest level over the last few years, not least through her superb recordings for Hyperion. She has been hailed as 'the pre-eminent Bach pianist of our time' and 'nothing less than the pianist who will define Bach performance on the piano for years to come' (Stereophile).
