THURSDAY June 13th - 8.00PM - NATIONAL CONCERT HALL
Angela Hewitt (piano)
Following her critically-acclaimed two-concert performance of Bach’s The Well-Tempered Clavier at the 2008 Festival, Canadian pianist Angela Hewitt returns for a solo recital presented in association with the National Concert Hall.
One of the leading pianists of her generation, Angela Hewitt regularly appears in recital and with major orchestras in prestigious venues throughout Europe, the Americas and Asia. Her performances and recordings of Bach have drawn particular praise, marking her out as one of the composer’s foremost interpreters of our time. The Festival is proud to have secured the only Irish performance of her The Art of Fugue Project which will see her perform this extraordinary work in two programmes in major halls worldwide during the 2012/2013 season. For her Festival appearance she performs Contrapunctus I-X alongside Schubert’s Valses Nobles and Liszt’s gargantuan Sonata in B minor. A feast of piano-playing for Irish audiences.
Schubert: 12 Valses Nobles, D969
Liszt: Sonata in B minor
Bach: The Art of Fugue, Contrapunctus I-X
