Pianist Angela Hewitt is an international music superstar and a musical ambassador for her country. She is also one of the great Bach interpreters of all time, currently on a globe-circling Bach Odyssey tour, which touches down in Victoria on Thursday, August 2 at 7:30 pm.

Two nights earlier, on Tuesday, July 31, Ms. Hewitt will have played Book One of Bach’s Well-Tempered Clavier at the Chan Centre in Vancouver. She crosses the Salish Sea to complete her Pacific Rim traversal of this monumental work by playing Book Two of the same work at the Cathedral in Victoria. Many music lovers and Angela Hewitt fans from across the Pacific Northwest will want to plan to attend both these memorable events.

Angela Hewitt is one of Canada’s national treasures, recognized as one of the world’s reigning interpreters of Bach’s keyboard music and the inheritor of the mantle of Glenn Gould. She is a Companion of the Order of Canada, and was recently announced as one of this year’s laureates of the Governor-General’s Performing Arts Awards.

When Angela Hewitt performed at the Cathedral three years ago, a nine-foot Fazioli concert grand piano was brought into the Cathedral, and that will be the case again this time. Her previous Victoria concert was completely sold out, and that is also sure to happen for this much-anticipated return engagement.
