Angela Hewitt | Masterly Performance in Melbourne

Angela Hewitt | Masterly Performance in Melbourne

Angela Hewitt took to the stage and keys in Melbourne last night, marking her first performance of nine in Musica Viva’s national 2013 International Concert Season.

Hewitt performed a delightful program of Bach selections (arr. by Wilhelm Kempf for piano), Beethoven Piano Sonata no 28 in A major, op 101 and Contrapunctus I-X of Bach’s famed “Art of Fugue”. Next stop – Perth, before returning to Melbourne to complete the “Art” with Conrapunctus XI to XIV on Saturday 28 September. For tour dates, complete program lists and more information, visit musicaviva.com.au/hewitt.

The audience at last night’s performance would have also noticed the presence of some modern technology on the stand. Hewitt performed from the score on her iPad, mounted on her instrument’s music stand, using a discrete foot-pedal for her “page-turns”. We hope she charges her battery before performances!
