Angela Hewitt

Angela Hewitt is a terrific pianist. She was born in Ottawa and studied
there with, inter al., Jean Paul Sevilla (himself a marvelous pianist
specializing in French repertoire). She has also lived in Paris.

After winning the Bach competition in 1985, she made a DG cd of various
Bach pieces (this was part of the prize). She has since recorded Bach for
Hyperion and CBC. While she is an excellent Bach player, I believe her her
greatest strength is in Romantic reperoire. Her Schumann is fabulous.

You can find out (and see) more at the Hyperion website

or by searching 'Hewitt' at the CBC site
