Angela Hewitt comes to the Apex...
One of the world’s leading pianists, Angela Hewitt makes her first visit to The Apex along with a welcome return from the European Union Chamber Orchestra on 7 February.
European Union Chamber Orchestra gave its first concerts in 1981 and soon gained an international reputation as a musical ambassador for the European Union. EUCO draws its members from Europe’s finest young professional orchestral players, and the result is a chamber orchestra that plays with the panache of a virtuoso soloist and the commitment of a top string quartet. It regularly performs in major concert halls throughout the UK and has broadcast several times live on BBC Radio 3.
Regularly appearing in recital and with major orchestras throughout the world, Angela Hewitt’s performances and recordings of Bach have drawn particular praise, marking her out as one of the composer’s foremost interpreters of our time: "I know of no musician whose Bach playing on any instrument is of greater subtlety, beauty of tone, persuasiveness of judgement or instrumental command than Hewitt's is here" - BBC Music Magazine.
Programme: Elgar - Serenade for Strings in E min, Op.20 Mozart - Concerto No. 14 in E flat, K.449 Bach - Concerto in F minor, BWV 1056 Haydn - Symphony No 57 in D major
