Daughter of a cathedral organist, the young Angela Hewitt ‘danced to Bach, sang to Bach, played him on the violin and recorder..’. Her passion has not faded. In 2016 she embarked on the Bach Odyssey – a mission to give public performance to all this consummate composer’s major keyboard works.
At SJE, we are to be treated to Book I of The Well-Tempered Clavier. The first of two collections of preludes and fugues in all 24 major and minor keys, this work is at once an exercise in counterpoint for students and, for pianists as accomplished as Angela Hewitt, one of the most technically demanding, imaginative and important pieces of music in the western repertoire.
Duration: 1:30 with interval
