One of the world’s leading pianists, Angela Hewitt appears in recital and as soloist with major orchestras throughout Europe, the Americas, Australia, and Asia. Her interpretations of the music of J.S. Bach have established her as one of the composer’s foremost interpreters of our time. For Hyperion, she has been recording the complete piano sonatas of Beethoven and adds to that series with an album of some of his sets of variations. The great Eroica variations are the centerpiece of this program, which ends with two amusingly Anglophile tributes, and contains some surprisingly under-appreciated Beethoven.
