7th SJE Arts International Piano Series: Angela Hewitt

Thursday 26 March 2020, 7.30pm

Angela Hewitt’s interpretations of Bach have established her as one of the composer’s foremost interpreters of our time.

In September 2016, Angela Hewitt embarked on a four-year ‘Bach Odyssey’ to present all the major keyboard works of J.S. Bach in a series of twelve recitals at major venues around the world, with many other concerts along the way. Last season saw performances of Bach Odyssey VIII in Tokyo and Odyssey IX at the Wigmore Hall, London. The final concert, Odyssey XII, in which she takes on Bach’s monumental Art of Fugue, will be performed in New York in May 2020.

The programme for tonight begins with Four Duets, followed by the delightful set of Little Preludes that Bach composed for teaching his eldest son. Following the interval, Angela turns to a pair of compositions published in 1735 as the second part of the Clavier Übung II. The Italian Concerto is a lively three-movement piece showing Bach’s familiarity with composers such as Corelli and Vivaldi. The French Overture by contrast looks more to the Versailles court and to the dance suites of Lully. Despite its title, the Overture is a large-scale work in eleven movements.

An evening with much to look forward to from the hands of a master.

Tickets: £39, £32, £25, £18; under 25s £29, £22, £15, £8
