Angela Hewitt occupies a unique position among today’s leading pianists. With a wide-ranging repertoire and frequent appearances in recital and with major orchestras throughout Europe, the Americas and Asia, she is also an award-winning recording artist whose performances of Bach have established her as one of the composer’s foremost interpreters. In 2020 she received the City of Leipzig Bach Medal: a huge honour that for the first time in its 17-year history was awarded to a woman.

Conducting from the piano, she has led the Toronto and Vancouver symphony orchestras, Hong Kong and Copenhagen philharmonic orchestras, Lucerne Festival Strings, Stuttgart Chamber Orchestra, Britten Sinfonia, Swedish and Zurich chamber orchestras, Salzburg Camerata, Orchestra Sinfonica Nazionale della Rai, Orpheus Chamber Orchestra in New York, Orchestra Ensemble Kanazawa in Japan, and Vienna Tonkünstler Orchestra in Vienna’s Musikverein. The 2023-24 season has seen her performing with orchestras in Italy, Finland, Poland, Estonia and Switzerland, including on tour in the UK with Kammerorchester Basel as well as a tour of north-east England with Royal Northern Sinfonia.

Elsewhere, Hewitt continues with recitals, concerts and festival appearances in Boston, Baltimore, Toronto, Ottawa, Rome, Zurich, Copenhagen, Cambridge and Stresa. She is also an artist-in-residence at London’s Wigmore Hall.

She studied with Jean-Paul Sévilla at the University of Ottawa, and in 1985 won the Toronto International Bach Piano Competition which launched her career. She is a member of the Royal Society of Canada, has seven honorary doctorates, and is a Visiting Fellow of Peterhouse College in Cambridge. In 2020 Angela was awarded the Wigmore Medal in recognition of her services to music and relationship with the hall over 35 years. She lives in London.
