Like any well-educated and renowned pianist, Angela Hewitt wants to share her expertise with other musicians. With many years of professional experience, Angela provided a range of antidotes for these students at Hong Kong University in 2018.
In the video, she speaks during a Music in Words lecture in her second appearance at the university.
“What is the ‘Angela Hewitt’ Bach?” asked moderator Professor Daniel Chua.
Angela replies: “Well, it encompasses everything, really. Everything from just the most wonderful musicality and the fact that his music is the basis of everything. … But I also see him as a very human person. I mean, he had this brilliant mind to write all this stuff with such a high level of inspiration and perfection in the writing and the construction, but also very, very human with a sense of humor and genuine sadness and sorrow, the whole gamut of human emotion.”
Listen to the whole lecture to get a taste of the “Angela Hewitt” Bach. To get the full experience, make sure to get your tickets to see her perform in Portland!
BOTH concerts are SOLD OUT, but we will have a “standby” line for folks who wish to purchase last-minute ticket returns. Make sure to come 45-minutes early and listen to a pre-concert chat in Lincoln Hall with our Director of Audience Engagement, Bill Crane. Angela also will be hosting a FREE Beyond the Score master class on SAT / MAY 4 at Lewis & Clark College: Flanagan Chapel.
